    The problem with Android is there are many options. In fact I think each different keyboard has its own settings and its own autocorrect. You can also set the default keyboard it so it offers...

    I didn't know anything until I bought some! I found the VT520 does three sessions and the VT420 does two. I also think some of the DEC DECServers will let you use some of the ports for serial host...

    Oh it is pretty draconian and unless supplied by a network operator such devices are illegal. Even amateur radio here is very restrictive compared to US. So no WinLink for example.
