Motorola Droid Bionic ... first android phone, love it :D  Can't wait to try out some Open ADK one of these days, once I get a handle on android development and the components required...

Saleae replacement probes arrived. Pins look different, almost like the pin is folder back over on itself so there more there for the wire to go over.
Wires go on & stay on now.

Ditto.  Actually my third Android phone - first was a giveaway from Google I/O in 2009, second was the original Droid.  They keep getting better - this one is wickedly fast compared to the original Droid.  I've heard others complain about the "graininess" of the Pentile display (what a horrible product name), but to my old eyes it's crystal clear.  A 4.3" display IMHO is just on the edge of being too big to be called a cellphone, but it's not as awkward as I had feared.

Android development is pretty simple, if a bit convoluted.

Yes, I finally gave in to temptation, ordered a Rover 5!!

I have 2 FastTrax, with no transmitters or vehicle battery, but the chassis, motors, gear boxes and tracks are all there.
I'll get them running, but I want the Rover 5 to play with now!

I bought an Android Tablet, an Optus "MyTB" aka ZTE V9.
It's great!
I've been messing around with Processing for Android and this Basic + MySQL interpreter, as basics go it is ok.
I get full access to the Tablets resources.

Other thing I grabbed was a kaiser baas KBA03027 Bluetooth mini keyboard.
Can't get it to work with Android, but under XP, Linux and Ubuntu it's great!
