The Many Faces of Android Devices
We ask our new health care provider users to let us know what kind of devices they’ll be using so we can send them download instructions that are specific to either Android or iOS operating systems. At pMD we know that there are lots of different kinds of Android phones out there, but a recent article opened my eyes to just how many different devices there are!


These many, many devices can be sorted by brand, too.


Health care providers sure have a lot of choices when it comes to the kind of phone they choose! Using the Android platform provides a lot of opportunity for customized devices: different screen sizes, features, buttons, bells and whistles. With so much variety it’s important for these providers to know that regardless of device or brand, the charge capture vendor and secure messaging vendor they select can operate on the device they have in their hand.
