The United States Army announced the winners of their first ever app challenge – Apps for the Army (or A4A, which would see some hardcore developers creating apps for the field) – and guess which platform won the hearts of our fighting men and women of the armed forces? Nearly 150 soldiers and Army civilians [...]

It had never occurred to me that the military might be using cell phones and these other platforms in the field (thinking ftw >.<). After having it mentioned to me, it really does make sense that they would.

I think its pretty big for the Android OS to be so new but already in consideration for military purposes. This is awesome!
