A Nice Feature for the Touch Only Device

Buzz from Yi Sun
Android-x86 has a nice feature for the touch only device (no to have a button at all). If you touch the right corner of the status bar, it enables a touch mode that allows you to simulate the home/menus buttons through some touch actions on the status bar (see http://www.android-x86.org/documents/touch-only-device-howto). With the Amazon test drive, when you click the right corner of the status bar, you will see a dialog showing up on the screen that tells you to wait for the function to be turned on. Even though the full feature does not work with the Amazon test drive, but it proves that Amazon is using our software.
