Android Emulator for 7 Inch Tablet

This section provides a tutorial example on how to create and run an Android Emulator for 7 inch tablets.

While I was creating my "vPhone" AVD, I saw that the AVD Manager supports a number of device types:

So I decided to create another AVD to simulate a 7 inch tablet. Here are the parameters I used on the Create new AVD screen:

Name: vTablet
Device: 7" WSVGA(Tablet)(1024 x 600:mdpi)
Target: Android 5.1.1 - API Level 22
CPU/ABI: ARM (armeabi-v7a)
   [x] Hardware keyboard present
Front Camera: None
Back Camera: None
Memory Options:
   RAM: 512, VM Heap: 16
Internal Storage: 200 MiB
SD Card/Size: 32 MiB

Then I launched the vTablet AVD with "Scale display to real size" turned on. After about 10 minutes, my 7 inch tablet simulator was running on my Windows system.

After unlocking the screen and clicking the Apps icon, I saw the apps list screen.

Notice that there is no emulation of keyboard. But I can use the Windows keyboard for input.
