     [1]coondoggie writes "Researchers with the Sandia National Laboratory
    have [2]tied together 300,000 virtual Android-based devices in an
    effort to study the [3]security and reliability of large smartphone
    networks. The Android project, dubbed MegaDroid, is carefully insulated
    from other networks at the Labs and the outside world, but can be built
    up into a realistic computing environment, the researchers stated."
