"Appleā€™s iPad was chosen because of the convenience of a single-platform versus potentially dealing with multiple OEMs on Android."

I'm sure that it is not the real reason.

Before the comments really get going, read this: Stop before you start. Regardless of the platform, this is a wonderful pilot program for men and women who fought bravely for your freedom to disagree with this post (or Apple, or a laundry list of non-Android things) and for PhoneArena's ability to freely post this on the internet.

I would hardly think that someone who took a bullet or IED for you is going to cry out in outrage that they were presented with an iOS device for rehabilitation. Please show some respect for these men and women who were fortunate to come home with their lives from the battlefield.

Just remember; if you really want to continue complaining about the VA's choice of device/os/manufacture, NASA launched an Android-powered satellite into space.

First of all I'm not from U.S.A. so they didn't took any bullet or IED for me, nor was fighting for my freedom...
Look around, there is much more countries in this world than only U.S.A. and not all PhoneArena.com readers are from U.S.A.

Second, I wasn't giving any comments about this program, I wasn't talking disrespectfully about veterans or U.S.A., I was STRICTLY TALKING ABOUT TABLETS CHOICE! So please, when next time you will want to trash someone's comment, use your own advice and do not use national grievances as a tool to trash someone's comment because manipulate with such things is deplorable step! Shame!

Simplicity what Cures, not complexity for the Sick. They don't have time navigating with Multiple OEMs to Cure the SICK. I know what I'm talking about, my Family is the Medical Fields.

Androids are used in space.
