Playing With Android


I have just finished downloading Android SDK and also Eclipse that is recommended for playing with Android, since it's based on Java language. I tried to play with the most simple example, but i got a different result. The example should have displayed a simple text widget with a text "Hello Android", but on my emulator, it showed up a default OS in Android Emulator, just like what has been presented by Steve Horowitz (and in the below screenshot). I don't know why. Perhaps i misconfigured or missing some packages (but i doubt that). I wonder if the code always tried to connect to the Internet, since i got a timeout when the Android emulator boots (check the other screenshot). It tooks quite some time to boot, but it has a nice bar, just like KITT had on Knight Rider.
