RE: Is Android Programming Accessible?

IDEAL group has developed both an accessible e-mail client and web browser
for Android.
Both open source and released to the eyes-free community.
The e-mail client is kalled K9, but I don't remember the name of the
accessible web browser.
I have not tried these apps my self though.
I don't have a Android phone yet.
But Android is still far behind iPhone regarding accessibility, but it's
very interesting and will just continue to improve.

And something called Spiel also.  I'm not sure what that is because I 
haven't looked into it.  Interesting that all of these apps are open source.
