The Chameleon Lab

Making sure Chameleon performs well across all Android Tablets can be a challenge, but it is one of our primary goals. So we are taking some steps to help us make the Chameleon experience as close as possible across all Android Tablets.

The Chameleon Labs page will be a site where we post tools to help us collect valuable data, as well as broadly testing specific things we feel could be a concern. We will also post some of the data that we find to keep you all informed.

Today we are introducing a tool to help us gather information about the type of tablet hardware that you guys are running.

Chameleon Hardware Info

In order for us to get a complete picture of the tablet landscape that we are targeting, we are looking for your help. We have created a simple app that gathers the specs of your Android Tablet, and the version of Android itself.

Head over to The Chameleon Labs page to find out more and download the TabletInfo APK.

Note: If you get the error 'Can't open file' you will have to use a file browser. Go to the downloads folder and install the app from there. This is an issue with download managers not being able to open the apk file.

      You need to have a "Beta-Tester" Pledge for $25.... Please think about that.

      :::GOOD LUCK:::

      Asus TF 101 with Keyboard Dock running ICS. Done without any issues :D

    15. Isthar on May 25, 2012

      I downloaded it yesterday on my Archos G9. At first it said "cannot open file" but I tried 2 more times and finally it worked.

    16. Emanuele Ricci on May 25, 2012

      I've downloaded it with my Xoom WiFi US with ICS and it says: cannot open file. Do you know why?

    17. Zubair on May 25, 2012

      Done and finished on the ASUS TF 101 with keyboard dock. Thanks Gabor, glad I could help! Looking forward to demos and prototypes and what/not.

      I am a programmer by day (and nights/freetime too I guess) , so if you will have more 'involved' tests, I will lend my services.

    23. Austin Radus on May 24, 2012

      I am having the same issue Patricio, cannot open file at all and I have the same device

      Just mirrored the note on The Labs page above about the error with some of the download managers.

    25. Patricio Céspedes Maturana on May 24, 2012

      Hi, i cant open the apk, in a galaxy tab 10.1 wifi 3.2 stock rooted rom, it simply says cant open the file.

    26. Christopher M. Green on May 24, 2012

      It only asked for internet access actually. I was kind of surprised by that one.
      Probably would have accepted pretty much anything though :p
      After all: I already trust them with my money and I do plan to install their software later on.
      They list what is collected in the link where the apk is posted.
