Revit on Android

We are looking at various ways of delivering Revit to our people at KlingStubbins and our partners. I'm geeking out over this one... running Revit on an Android phone. I should have had 4G turned on and I would have gotten better performance but maybe next time. Yes, I'm rendering the model. The multi-touch is a little difficult to work with in Revit so I don't recommend you running out and replacing your desktops with iPads but if you are in a pinch and need to check a model in the field, there's no stopping you now!
Details huh? Well there are actually several ways you can accomplish this and one of them I can't mention yet but suffice it to say it's my favorite. The other methods are by using remote detop of some sort, androidVNC works. the other is Citrix Xendesktop, which is essentially running a windows deskop virtually from a server. I'll post more when I can!
Cheers,
