Clover devices

Our point-of-sale software runs on custom hardware for the best merchant experience. Note that Clover devices are not Google Play certified and do not come with Google Play Services. Applications are published through the Clover App Market. Most Android applications run unmodified unless the app depends on Google services not available in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

The following table shows the Clover devices, the Clover hardened Android versions running on the devices, and the countries where the devices are available currently.
