do want, it would be great to spec
Quake on reaaaallllyyy slloooooowww Android's virtual machine Dalvik, lol kids - you've made my day.
I admit that Nvidia Tegra 100500 and 10+core ARM can handle quake even on Dalvik (besides, I personally think that Android will be optimized in the future, or better to say android is the future; except for some specific tasks where Win8 rules).
But I could never understand the need of watching demos on cellphone, maybe it's some modern trend, ok. Why not to export best moments of your (or not your) game to video file and copy it to cellphone (upload somewhere?) to show it to friends or whatewer?. Or is it like on youtube, where every 2-nd guy uploads tonns of uselees videos? Ok, maybe I am too old to get it.
Imagine for a while you playing Quake on cellphone with some bluetooth keyboard and mouse, or with some touchscreen keyboard, or even accelerometer. We are still speaking about high skill competitive game with complicated movement and not easy aiming techniques, right? Maybe angrybirds online suits better for this purpose? As for speccing using cellphone, i would say if QL had GTV then it would be not a bad idea. Otherwise all major events are streamed, and can be watched on quite any mobile device.
I wasn't talking about actually "playing" on some mobile handset. I'm totally with you that it just can be stupid.
I would definitely play QL on my android tablet when on the go.. With a mouse and keyboard of course.
QL on a TF201 with the KB + mouse would rock. I won an IPad at my company xmas party & it sukt. Returned it and swapped for a TF101. Kept it for the 14-day return period and loved it before returning it and am waiting for the TF201(Prime) to hit Best Buy - hopefully this weekend.
BTW, did ASUS really think Hasbro would let them get away with that? They've had no choice but to allow "Transformer" and "Optimus"(LG), but "Transformer Prime" kinda seems to be really trying to steal some thunder.
But yeah, after Ice Cream Sandwich comes out, I think FPS on the TF201 would do quite well. With the optional KB and a good mouse one should be able to frag just as well as on most PCs.

thats for cell phone?
Also android has been sucessfully ported for x86 processors and in cheap-o cases it runs better than windows, thus creating a reason to install android on a full pc its obviously going to use less background resources leaving the game to the rest..
Also great for wifi hoppers for keeping costs down but QL isn't so great with 3G BBDongle so users should be able to choose whether they play against 3G/Android users
