I was given one of the Samsung Galaxy tablets last Christmas, my wife got in on some kind of corporate promo where you could exchange your "miles" for merchandise. She was able to get the tablet and two ipods (one for each kid) for the price of shipping. Good thing too, we were flat broke and Christmas was going to be rather thin around here.
I have a friend who has an iPad, and frankly, I like the Android tablet better.
I mention all of this because of a particular app (free, no less) I found and have been futzing about with: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rfo.basic&hl=en
"RFO BASIC". It's a compiler/interpreter with impressive capabilities including access to the various sensors, bluetooth, and the rest. I've used it to make a couple of time wasters and calculators, I mention it here because it really is an awesome little project and in time I may use it to build front ends to a couple of Arduino apps with a serial bluetooth connection. It even integrates into Eclipse as I understand, though have not done that yet (not a huge fan of Eclipse). I'm willing to bet there's more than a couple of folks here that might love this app for doing rapid prototyping of a disposable app or simple front end. It does look capable of handling midweight applications, but for now I am mainly just goofing around with it. Makes a great way to waste time while waiting for things..better than Angry Birds, anyway.
No matter what, this guy deserves some major props for this project- there's a level of professionalism in the project that is rarely found. The fact it allows reasonable development ON THE DEVICE, and includes the runtime interpreter- this dude knows what he is doing.
