Android timer dialog

So I have a simple turn based card game. As of now the game works perfectly but as soon as I do my turn the code for the simple ai kicks in and he immediately does his turn. And it looks unrealistic and monotonous. For the time being I want to implement a small pause. How can I go about doing that? I was thinking I could display a dialog box displaying please wait and some how randomly generate the amount of seconds the opponent takes to do his turn to make it look real?
