|Sana is built on the Google Android platform. This means that it currently runs on Android-enabled phones such as the G1. There has been some concern about price issues of Android phones. While the G1 is expensive and cost-prohibitive in some scenarios for Sana, Google has plans to release several lower cost handsets in the near future. They have already announced a $200 (unsubsidized) handset. There is an inherent quality need in remote medical diagnosis and imaging (for example, a high-resolution camera in the phone), which means core functionality will always have to reside on a decent-quality cell phone.
As the platform becomes more mature, we plan on porting Sana to other cellular platforms.
