Yes. I am running test builds on my Asus Transformer. Works fine except for the phonegap audio issue. I hope that gets fixed.

I have a generic [read cheap!!! hehe] tablet running android 2.2 that plays C2 games just fine. I posted the ghost blaster tutorial on my server and it played fine. . . except I forgot to add touch screen input to the game. oops!

I bought this just recently and I'd say it's pretty good. Also does Flash and I think Java =]

Only problem is that the touchscreen is single-touch and would be best with a stylus =/Jayjay2011-12-07 13:47:45

You could get a Chinese made Windows 7 tablet that has a slow Atom CPU, a crappy graphics card and a fairly low res screen. But would it really be worth it? (And would cost you about 5-600 bucks if you know where to look).

Why do you need a tablet to run Construct 2 anyways?

So why not a laptop? Potentially a lot more powerful, with a keyboard and ability to plug in a mouse?

I have nothing against tablets, have one myself, but for development it just seems like asking for trouble (and a high level of discomfort).

For what it's worth here are the Chinese cheapies: Link
