Please correct me if I'm wrong, but am a little surprised at the 
interest in TOR on Android  - Android seems a closed, phone-home "cloud" 
computer with little/no regard for privacy or anonymity. I'd always 
wonder about a nice little log somewhere on my phone and/or in the "cloud".

OTOH, IIUC, The N900 can be configured as a traditional lap/desktop. 
(Arguably, one may want to hold out for an entirely open-source meego 
N900 with the new Intel chip)
