If you have recently updated your Android SDK you will find this target;

id: 17 or "android-12"
     Name: Android 3.1
     Type: Platform
     API level: 12
     Revision: 2
     Skins: WXGA (default)

You may be lured into creating an emulator using it. If you do, don’t expect it to work. I wasted a day on it. It goes so slowly that it is unusable. Adding more ram helps; hw.ramSize = 2047. Unfortunately on my Windows 7 64 bit box I got the error “Cannot allocate memory”.

Lots of users report the same problem. If you need to test on an Android tablet buy a cheap one and use that.
