The wife gave me an Android tablet, for my birthday, and I thought it would be another way to visit iKC, when I'm out and about.

Ok, I'm not the most up-to-date or technically savy person on the block;  I'm pretty comfortable on the desk top and have gotten used to using my little netbook, but this "Android" thing is a whole new ball game.

I like it for it's size (7"),  better battery life than the netbook and the ability to use it as an e-book reader, but trying to visit iKC is problematic at best. 

I've tried several different browsers and found only 1 (Opera) that will let me view the site in any format that resembles what I'm used to.  Most only give a small set of views (like the recent activities feed), even when requesting the "Desktop" view.

Opera does give the standard view, but provides a limited functionality.

Steve has said that Ning is working on a portable version, but that's in the future.

So..., with all the "Android" phones and tablets out there, what's everyone else using to view iKC?

The only Google browser that I have available is "Black Google", aan energy saving app that searches in black and white.  Webpages show up correct though.  Might have to see about getting Google "Chrome" from a third party app store.
When I find the best browser for iKC, then I'm going to try to make a shortcut for the home screen.

Jan, I bought my netbook to get the feel of "mobile" communicating. It's not in league with a full fledged notebook/laptop, but it's mighty handy.

Full version on every thing but Opera doesn't look like the desk top version.
I'm more pleased with it, even without all the posting functions.
