In the version of android studio that I am running, to replicate what Ben is doing in eclipse I configured the project and selected form factors which is done essentially the way Ben does it in eclipse. Here is where the differences arise but the same end result can be reached. In "add an activity to Mobile" I didn't choose blank activity. Instead I choose "Tabbed Activity" which for me was the last activity to choose from the given list. In the next and final set of options I was given the option to adjust my Navigation Style. To match what Ben did in eclipse I selected "Action Bar Tabs (with ViewPager)" and clicked finished. As far I can tell so far the project is identical to one in the video tutorial.

You usually select the navigation type, one step before you select the template.
