I keep hearing about these sub $100 android devices, so hear's a challenge 
for anyone, find a sub $100 android unlocked phone in Canada. The hardware 
would at least have to have a gps and enough memory to hold a reasonable 
amount of map data. It would also have to perform well with talkback. I look 
forward to seeing what people come up with.
As for loadstone being a web app that's not what loadstone is all about. The 
idea is to have it work without a data plan or connectivity of any kind. Of 
course if you have connectivity even better for data loading and other 
features but the basics will function offline.
