Hey Craig! Fancy running into you here!
I don't know of a non-iOS tablet or app, as we're knee deep in Apple devices around Hanesville, but I also have two old CR100s, which are still in use and hanging in there. One works fine, but on the other the battery went bad, so I did a DIY, non Sonos battery replacement, to save some money. Long story short, the new battery didn't last long, and that unit of necessity lives on the kitchen recharger almost continuously, as it is dead within about half an hour otherwise, and the resident teens seem to leave it all over God's creation.
We mainly use the iOS app to control things now, although as you know the CR100 is much quicker/easier to 'wake up" compared to the app. I sometimes think about buying a new Sonos battery, but have a hard time justifying the expense when we have the app on so many devices, and zones in multiple locations away from the one fully functioning controller.
