This is an interesting idea. I have never though about Android
being used outside of the Smartphone/Tablet products, but
you are right.

Android has a lot of developers, has development tools and
is a quite elaborate platform. Why not use the widgets and
gadgets of the toolkit for industrial GUI requirements.

I am not expereinced myself in Android, but there are at least
3 projects to port Android to the Beagleboard. And since the
GTA04 is 95% compatible, I think Android could be ported
quite quickly.

It just needs the additional hooks to CAN, Ethenet, etc.

Something to think about.
