I am getting different results on the Galaxy Nexus (ICS).  Close to double what Tab saw.

~380 LUX in the office type lighting.
~28000 LUX in very bright light.

Interesting.  I'd like to see a few more results, to see if the Galaxy
Nexus is just an outlier, or if things are generally that spread out.

If they turn out to be that spread out, though, then I recommend
defining the named light levels not in absolute lux values, but
instead just defining them generally and noting that devices should
map their lux ranges as appropriate (with a note that this lack of
definition is due to the significant divergence in detected lux across
