Is there a version for the Kindle or even Android?

A lot of non-iPad tablets aren't getting a lot of the apps. that iPad gets.

That's the tradeoff for the lower prices of the other models.

The VOIP company I use had a blog about this, as they had their iPhone app out, but kept hitting delays in getting the Android version of that app done.

They said that there are a relatively limited number of iPad/iPhone versions, but so many different hardware details on the various Android phones/tablets - it made it much tougher to get the Android version working.

Still can't figure out how to get the ER.org app. It doesn't seem to show up at the Kindle App store.


i bought this kindle 8.9 case with real keyboard-case stands the kindle up and keyboard wirelessly connects works great


Amazon.com: Belkin Bluetooth Keyboard Folio Case for Kindle Fire HD 8.9": Kindle Store


also- i have had the same problem at another site that i loaded the app. for some reasons some specialty apps do'nt work however did you look for it in the cloud setting-sometimes they go there and you have to pluck them from the cloud

Samsung Galaxy 2 7", wifi only, $180 a month or so ago. I also got a $26 wifi router. Very happy with them. Great for games, media consumption (bought a bunch of 16G microSDs also).

I am breaking the rules of this thread by saying this, but I returned an Ipad mini today. The screen was too small, the font wasn't sharp enough and it took forever to charge. This was my first tablet. I am going to do some more research. Perhaps I will buy a smart phone first, I've never owned a smart phone.

I am really behind the times.
