From the Archives - 2008 Article on non-phone Android

I'm sure most of you have seen this article from Stephen Shankland of CENT in 2008 on using Android on non-phone devices. He was spot on about Android showing up in a lot more things than phones.

 Now, four years later (ish) I find it interesting that many of the concerns that Stephen had about Android have come to the forefront. Issues around fragmentation and compatibility that he calls out in his article are a big deal for Android developers.

While some may think these issues are mostly UI related, even in non-UI based Android systems there will be some compatibility issues from version to version. It was true in 2008 and it's still true today.
