[Loadstone] Porting to Android

I have a Samsung Young phone which I can give you for free, I can send it 
from Romania via Mail if it's possible. It is a 60 euros price, but it has 
everything: wifi, GPS, memory ram one giga, like an iPhone 5, it has 4 GB 
internal storage and support a 64 SD card flash memory, I have here one of 8 
GB which I can put inside before sending.
Of course this phone is small and it is not so confortable with talkback, 
but everything can be done with a little patience. Even Google Maps works. 
You can use of course Google Maps APIs for free.
If you are interested, my e-mail address is emanuelboboiu at gmail dot com.
    Best regards,

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.
