I agree that this is a nice milestone. We'll talk about what that
means for mid-term during DevCon :). Actually, as long as there's
decent progress (or study-work induced lack of progress), I don't
really care too much about mid-terms, so I don't think you have a
lot to worry about. The final result is what really matters after
all, and I am confident that you'll finish the task successfully.

Much as I'd like to claim that the n900 is more suitable, I suspect
Android isn't really going to be much harder to work with, it makes
it a lot cheaper to get a suitable device, and it does seem to have
a lot of momentum right now, so I'll have to reluctantly admit that
Android seems to be the right choice to make at this point in time.
