    Hi everybody--

    Well, I guess my first post should be in the introduction area, huh? Anyway, I'm currently on the iPhone 3GS (AT&T) and am 99% set on transitioning to an Android device. I'm really excited about it. After a few weeks of investigating the Motorola Atrix online, I finally went in to play with it...and got wowed by the Samsung Infuse instead!

    Anyway, as I was poking around on market.android.com, I noticed one app that said it was designed for devices powered by Tegra. That raised a question that I hadn't thought about before...are all Android apps available on all Android devices? Or do I need to go back to my old PC gaming days and start checking all of the specs on the apps before buying/installing them?

    Regardless, I'm excited about making my move. I'd love to wait until the Attain (Galaxy S2) comes out but the Infuse is down to $100 and I don't think the Attain will be close enough to that price to warrant waiting too long. Any thoughts on my device selection is also welcome!

    Welcome to the forums, woodjer. Most apps are compatible for all phones but there are certain games optimized for the tegra chip but that's a very small number in relation to the whole android app eco system.
