Sweet... I just ordered one of these from Amazon, and it looks like it should handle it nicely. Let me know if you want a beta tester!

I second that motion. I have an LG Optimus L9 and I would love to move up from the unofficial Artemis player to the real McCoy.

If you need a beta tester with a Samsung Galaxy S3 Let me know!

Thanks for porting this to Android, I can't wait to play!

Another volunteer to beta here. Got a few cheaper end tablets laying around.

Ooh...I do believe that even my aging Tegra 2 should handle that. Good to hear. Looking forward to it!

I've got a couple android phones and android tablets that meet the specs, I'd be happy to beta test! Although I doubt anyone here wouldn't!

I have a Nexus7. Be happy to give it a try if needed.

I've actually got one of those as well, exact one in fact, I believe. Thing to understand, which you've probably noticed by now, is that it runs Android tablet flavor, but you have to have an HDMI display to kick it out to. And since you don't have a touchscreen it can be problematic. Anytime I select an entry field to type in, the onscreen keyboard comes up, even with using a wireless keyboard. And you won't be able to take advantage of any of the multi-touch input that a tablet allows through its screen, unless you know of some multi-touch display/input you can USB in that I'm not aware of. So, your mileage may vary greatly using this kind of a box to run the Android version.

It'll be interesting to find out!

It'll be good to know I'll have a 'captains map' in my pocket.

I've got an Asus sl-101 Slider. It's got a keyboard, HDMI, full USB 2.0, and has specs several times exceeding those you listed. I would be willing to help with the beta, if you'd like me to.

Well, I've only had it for about 24 hours now, and it doesn't seem to mind a regular mouse (although I did have to up the mouse sensitivity to about 70%-80% so it would be more responsive), and my goal for the first one is to act as a server/main viewscreen, so outside of the initial IP address, it really doesn't have a lot to do regarding UI input. I do, however, look forward to putting it through its paces on the other stations, too-- if they work on all stations decently, then I can put all 6 stations (as well as an observer/GM station) together for a fraction of the cost/weight/space/power consumption of just one of my current stations.

Walmart has $70 android tablets that look like they will meet the specs. I'm looking at hopefully having an artemis room at a con in May with 4 (maybe more) bridges. If that box works I would plug it into used projectors. If it all works out it'd be $50 for the server, $350 for the consols, $100 for a used projector. $500 per bridge setup cost. Makes the idea of putting a few bridges together a lot cheaper!

Sounds like my GoogleTV passes the test as well, hopefully it shows up in the market as compatible with it. I'm certainly willing to test!
