So, just to inform you, my native language isn't English so sorry for some misspelled words.
In this turtorial I will show you what can you do with old android device which you don't use anymore.
You could probably sell it, but where's the fun in that?
I'm using older Alcatel T10 tablet( single core 1.0ghz cpu, 1 gb of ram, 7" tft display), but almost any android powered device with a screen would work.
I've got it when it wasn't working( problem with charging) for 100kunas( around 18$), fixed it and started using it.
But after around 25 seconds I realized it wasn't really usable because it isn't quite stable(apps closing etc.)
So I was wondering what to do with it and ended up making it very good Clock/Media player/Online radio/Email notifier/Weather station/Photo frame, and it all works simultaneously.
Step 1: Quick set up
So basicly, tablet is connected to a stand by hot glue, and with 3.5mm audio cable connected to old pc speakers.
They are not great but are still quite usable.
I used some double sided tape to secure it in place so it doesn't move when using it.
If you have a working charging port, things are even more easier, because you don't have to solder anything.
And that's basicly it for a set up.
Next, I will show you all the apps I'm using to make it work.
