Yes, unfortunately Lollipop aka Android 5.0 roll out seems pretty slow.
I hope you manage to get on it!
The previous < Android 5.0 way of not using
was to create a Home screen launcher. Which can be a little finicky to

Yes, Android 5.0 tablet + Webconverger would be cheaper than an Apple
There are also Android 5.0 devices as large as TVs coming out I'm told.
So exciting stuff!
I also need to find time to create a fresh Webconverger for the rpi2.
It will be using gitfs + systemd + rpi foundation's webkit hacks I guess
