I think (as an iPad user) that the iPad should get some focus BUT I would suggest you continue to pursue the iPad AND Android focus since from what I've seen at my FLGS is typically a couple android units and several iPads (with a refurbished iPad1 making a handy game tool for folks who want a libary).
I don't know the spread of android devices as much since I use a kindle fire (it's a gift..and I like some of the free tools I got) but I have seen a LOT of rooted androids at the store.

A question I have about Android Tablets.. they are more consistent in layout and commonality than Android phones I hope? I ask because I've got a few friends who complain about having 'bloat' apps on their phones to the point one makes it a point to root any android phone his family gets to get a new, current and clean install.
I'm on both an iPad and an iPhone 4S.
As far as the icrit app goes, a way to deal with high crit multiplier draws would be great.
x2 = 1 draws
x3 = 2 draws
x4 = 3 draws
as far as I can tell there's no way to pull that off on the app so that someone with a x4 crit weapon can pull 3 draws at the same time and then choose which one they want.

Uhm... I saw a lot of phones being mentioned in the above thread. I guess that's fine - and I know about screens getting bigger and higher-res and so on - but are you guys really using the phones at the table? When gaming?
I've got an oldish HTC Desire with a bunch of apps that I use for non-RPG releated stuff, but at the table - when I'm needing RPG apps the most - I'm exclusively using a tablet (and so are 3 of the 4 people that I game with).
If you could transmogrif your Adventure Path's into apps, that are heavily hyperlinked with a rules encyclopedia and includes your layered maps, then that would be fantastic. Something to dream about.
Add some kind of slave-tablet functionality, where we could put one tablet at the center of the table and have the GM control the view on that tablet. Including removing "fog of war" on dungeon maps, then I would be in heaven.
I do know a little about software development and the complexities involved here, so I know that it's never going to happen. But I also never thought that our gaming group would be in a situation were we could muster more tablets than players. So I guess that the future is happening now.
