Setting up Android PhoneGap 1.7 development environment

Before few days i did blog about Setting up Android PhoneGap development environment in that case i had PhoneGap 1.6 working on Android 2.2. But then PhoneGap 1.7 came along and the Getting started document document talks about how to setup PhoneGap 1.7 which is now called Apache Cordova with Android 4.0.3. I followed the steps in the document and was able to get it working, one strange thing was after i said run as Android application it did not work as expected for first couple of times but after couple of times it started working, i am still trying to figure out what happened. I built this simple application that uses the device API to print device and Cordova related information. This is how my HTML looks like, you can download the source code for the application from here

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Device Properties Example</title>

    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" 
 src="cordova-1.7.0.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">

    // Wait for Cordova to load
    //
    document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);

    // Cordova is ready
    //
    function onDeviceReady() {
        var element = document.getElementById('deviceProperties');

        element.innerHTML = 'Device Name: '     + device.name     + '<br />' + 
                            'Device Cordova: '  + device.cordova  + '<br />' + 
                            'Device Platform: ' + device.platform + '<br />' + 
                            'Device UUID: '     + device.uuid     + '<br />' + 
                            'Device Version: '  + device.version  + '<br />';
    }

    </script>
  </head>
  <body>
    <p id="deviceProperties">Loading device properties...</p>
  </body>
</html>
On the deviceready event i am reading different device properties and displaying them in the page. This is how the page looks like
