Army picks Android for Nett Warrior device

The Army has tapped Android to provide what some observers are calling wearable computers as part of its Nett Warrior program, Wired reports.

The service is reluctant to call the device a smart phone, but Wired reports it will have many features that come standard on the devices, such as Global Positioning Systems and the ability to be read in sunlight and be dimmed for operations at night.

The solicitation for the Nett Warrior End-User Device says its purpose is to "provide the soldier with enhanced mission planning, monitoring, communication and situational awareness."
