The excitement is palpable. You’ve unwrapped your shiny new Android phone, charged the battery, and inserted the Sim. You’re ready to roll. Here’s what happens next…
With most Android phones, as soon as you switch the handset on, a picture of the familiar robot logo is what welcomes you. Touch this and you’ll be shown how to use the onscreen virtual keyboard. This is also where you create the Google account that you will need, among other things, for buying apps. If you already have a Googlemail (or Gmail) account then you can use this instead.
