Someday soon, I can imagine major newspapers providing similar
very-low-cost (disposable) Android tablets as their 'green initiative'.
Think about it... a comfortable size tablet, included for free if you get a
2 - 3 year subscription.

I like having a choice between multiple hardware providers. Competition
makes them try harder to make better products and lower prices. I see your
point about being overloaded with unnecessary drivers, etc. It can be
confusing to us humans. But in this age of technology, shouldn't the
computer/pad be smart enough to pick the correct driver on its own?

There have been a few posts in agreement, for various reasons, that the
Apad may not be the best choice for an Android device to test revMobile
apps on. I would like to hear recommendations on other low-mid range
devices that you guys would get as a testing platform. The iPad of course
is not an option, or is it? I know that Android has been installed on an
iPhone, although it probably voided the commandments.

Has the Rev team stated which version of Android will be the minimum spec -
1.5, 1.6 or 2.x?
