Android will forever have a place in the history of online poker thanks to one thing: Full Tilt Poker releasing their mobile version of Rush Poker as an Android app. Now, Rush Poker for the Android wasn't the first mobile poker client you could use to play for real money online. However, it was by far the most ambitious effort by any major online poker site to that point.
On top of that, Rush Poker changed how a lot of players thought about playing online poker on a mobile device, Android or otherwise. Before the Rush Poker app for Android, the general opinion of the poker playing community was that mobile was too slow and too cramped to hold real appeal. Rush Poker solved the speed problem, and a new generation of smart phones (many powered by Android) offering huge screens and better touch-responsive interfaces covered the cramped issues. The combination of the two near-simultaneous advances represented a clear milestone for mobile online poker, one that continues to reverberate to this day.
