That said, Mosh does seem pretty interesting, -- and by golly, considering the terrible 3G speeds I get on my Android phone and how often the 'connectbot' app acts up, I will surely be giving this a try when I get time later this week.
(is it possible to strike text?) Thanks for the correction, I misunderstood how the protocol Mosh uses works. SSH is apparently used for initiation. Caution seems wise.
