We are going to have an online poll using SMS in an upcoming ceremony. We also want to show the result of the poll on a large screen using a video projector. The idea that I have is to use an android phone to receive text messages and forward them to a PC using a TCP/IP connection. If the message is forwarded to the PC, I can handle the rest of the things easily. Now, I have two questions regarding the above idea:
Do you know any application of piece of code that forwards any incoming text message to a given ip address/port number?
Is an android phone capable of handling a large number of text messages? That would be 100-200 messages per minute. The latter issue is a more important one since I have no clue about the number and I cannot test the scalability of the system since the day of the ceremony.
