---------------------------------

             Summary: improve docs for Windows workstations when building for Android
                 Key: CB-5533
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-5533
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Docs
    Affects Versions: Master
            Reporter: Marcel Kinard
            Priority: Minor


See https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/phonegap/QbnoaPxg4Ug and http://teusink.blogspot.com/2013/07/guide-phonegap-3-android-windows.html

The fact that this person wrote a blog on how to get an app created on Android using a Windows
workstation and that it got so many "thanks" comments indicates that cordova-docs may need
some improvements. 

My suspicion is that the docs are a bit thin in places (especially for newbies), and the committers
are mostly Mac users. I'm guessing that Android with a Windows workstation is probably the
most common consumer scenario.

So the task here is to do an end-to-end walkthrough as a newbie of creating an Android app
on a Windows workstation that originally has no pre-reqs installed, and make sure that all
the needed tasks and explanations are in cordova-docs.

Bonus points for increasing the scope to include:
- iOS on a clean Mac
- BB10 on Windows workstation
- WP8 on Windows workstation
