    I mean. You can really say that. Anything other than hardcore gaming you can do on an Android phone.


    I love Android.

    By the very basic definition of the word "computer" anything with a processor and "computes" is a computer. Android rocks socks, and turns everything it's put on into a little handheld computer.

    In the strictest, industry terms sense, yes. It is a computer.

    BUT, if you expect to act like your current day PC/Mac, you will be sorely disappointed. If you hold it to realistic standards (think P3 or or earlier) you will enjoy your experience a lot more

    If I can remember correctly back to my microprocessors and microcontrollers class, heheh... yes, they are absolutely hand held computers! The fact they are running on a linux kernel that is capable of multitasking processes is just icing on the cake.
