RF Spectrum (was: Android tablet for wifi analysis?

Thanks everyone for your input on this, I appreciate it.
Eric, right now we haven't really been using anything for RF interference analysis, so I have also been looking into that. Wi-spy looks interesting (and they plan on an Android version of their software, but when?) and I also found WiPry which works on iOS devices. Any thoughts on these devices for checking RF interference?
I don't think you'll get much RF detail from a stock wireless chip, at least not spectrum analysis (if it can, I' love to hear about/see it :) ).
While on the RF spectrum thought, anyone have any experience with Fluke's AirMedic? It's a USB-housed wireless / spectrum analyzer. Looking at the brief specifications it looks neat, but comes in a "standard" version and a "extended spectrum analysis" version that's 2x the cost of the standard, making me wonder if the standard does any spectrum at all...
We're looking at wireless test equipment (beyond the Droid + WiFi Analyzer) to try and troubleshoot some problematic cases we have run into. Would love to hear what others are doing / using / liking / hating / etc.
