Thanks for the info Mark. I think we need something bigger than a 7" tablet
for this project, but it is interesting to note you've got good results on
the Hudl.

I did read here <http://forums.adobe.com/message/5078056> about the Nexus
10 having issues with Adobe Air but good to hear that you've had some
success with a Nexus. Sounds like the problems were overcome in Air 3.6.
Hopefully it gives an indication that Adobe may tackle the problem with
Intel processors.
