Actually, if you search for a WebDT 366 running Windows CE 5.0, I'm 
working to make APRSISCE/32 compatible with it.  They go for around $100 
on e-Bay and include both WiFi and Bluetooth typically.

The one you list doesn't say anything about bluetooth, so adding a 
bluetooth to serial interface to your rig won't help you.  As with 
Windows CE vs Windows Mobile, just because it says "Android" doesn't 
mean it has the same features available as other things that say "Android".

Heck the camera's low res is optimized for the small size picutre messages that were discussed recently.
