Robert Cooper 23 Jul 2011 I would get one,but they just seem a little too expensive. Sam Steele 23 Jul 2011 Yeah, I got this one free for attending Google I/O. I wouldn't buy one either, they cost too much for their limited functionality. But for free + the free 3G connectivity they make pretty sweet android dev laptops (with Ubuntu), assuming you have a device to test on as it's not fast enough to run the emulator.

I'm not sure if there's a way to run a terminal under X, but I imagine there is.
