It's amazing what this little wonder can do. It runs a Debian Linux variant (Raspian), and not Andriod. It could run Android, but as far as I know, there isn't a version available yet for the Pi. I run Linux Mint on my laptop, and Debian is a very close cousin, so this isn't a problem for me. If your experience is limited to the GUI of an Android or iPad tablet, this is a great and inexpensive way to learn how computers work.
The Pi is intended to be a learning tool, for prototyping and development. So, out of the box it won't do much, but that's where your creativity comes in. Raspian comes with a number of programming languages, such as ANSI C, C++, TCL, Python, and others. If you want to use another programming language, chances are there is a Debian Linux version that will run on the Pi.
This kit comes with an 8GB uSD card that contains NOOBS (New Out Of Box Software installer) and four operating systems for you to choose from when you first boot up the Pi. Two of them include XBMC, a open-source media center app. You can install more than one operating system; when the Pi boots it will allow you to pick the OS to use, just like a real computer does.
In order to use the VGA monitor you have stashed away in the closet with the Pi, you must buy an active HDMI-to-VGA adapter. I bought one from Amazon, the "Cable Matters Gold-Plated Active HDMI to VGA Adapter" that is working great. I had to edit the config.txt file on the Pi to set the screen resolution, so it's not PnP. But that's how you learn, by trying things and fixing what doesn't work.
I had a 7-port USB 2.0 hub stashed away that I added, and I suggest you do the same. The Pi has four USB 2.0 ports, and they will fill up fast.
While the kit was excellent, I rated it 4 stars because the knockoff Realtek wifi adapter in this kit was crap. With no load the ping reply's would be high, and upon load you would see packet loss. It is a known issue for this exact adapter. Purchase the EDIMax adapter instead, it's cheap, and is a working realtek chipset. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003MTTJOY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Everything you see in the listing comes in a sealed bag within a mailing envelope. It is well packaged. My set was complete as shown in ad. I have Prime; I ordered it on a Thursday, it was at my door less than 24 hours later. I couldn't be simpler to set up. If you're looking at this item to purchase, then you are an 'explorer'. You will have no problems with it. I included a photo from the instructions about "installing" the heat sinks. If you can put a stamp on an envelope, you can do it.
*Depending on where you live, the time and date may or may not be correct. Your first lesson on this might be correcting that. (This ain't Windows!)
*Bluetooth - OK
*I connected to my WiFi with no problem.
*Installed Raspbian with no problem
*I haven't yet tested audio output...Took a while to figure out how to force audio through HDMI - but OK
*HDMI video connection is good.
*Wireless keyboard is good.
*The case is crystal clear, everything fits perfectly and it snaps shut tightly.
There is no lack of support out there for this device. This is the 3rd edition - lots of experience out there.
The seller's package was complete and Amazon fulfilled the order quickly, so no problems there.
If you think you want it...don't hesitate. Mash down that "Purchase" button!
Between NOOBS and the instruction manual, I was able to get it all working in a short time, so I didn't have to struggle with it. Although I'm used to downloading Linux distros and puzzling out the installation techniques, it always eats up a lot of time, so I'm happy to have NOOBS take care of all this automatically. If you have no experience with Linux, NOOBS will be very handy for you. Then once you get booted into the OS, things will be very easy for you to figure out.
I also bought a Rankie HDMI to VGA adapter (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZMV7RL2), and used that to connect an old Dell 17" VGA monitor to the RPi 3. It was plug and play and the RPi 3 desktop comes up perfectly on the monitor. Didn't have to do any configurations in the RPi 3.
Once thing I just had to try was to see how it would work for web browsing, and wow, it works really well. So, along with other experimenting, I'm also going to use it as an extra web browsing system.
