Which SmartQ-device for Android

I am very interested in running (only!) Android.

Can anybody tell me if this is possible on a SmartQ device and if so, which device is best suitable (Q5, Q7, V5 or V7), which android version (official ones or other releases) and does this work well or with short commings?

Thank you!

If I only wanted to run Android, I'd look very hard at the Archos 5 Android or consider waiting for the, rumored, release of the Archos 7 Android next month.

The SmartQ 5 can run the Covia version of Android. That is a flashable version so could run as your only OS.

Thanks guys ...

... for the replies.

HoundX, I was indeed wondering if I should wait.

Nation.A.List, is Covia stable, English language and likely to have future updates?

I'm pretty sure you can switch it into English, I've not used it so can't give an objective reply about stability. If I knew the answer to your third question I would have won £56M on the Euro lottery last Friday
