Thanks for the info. Will certainly check out the app later.
Am new to Phidgets and Java, so still going through a bit of a learning curve.
Am also a very keen Android user, with some success in producing my own apps. Nothing on the Market Place though.
Would love to see a Phidget release on Android. Would be pretty cool to have an Android app to control my Scalextric timing system I'm currently building.

My question with the current approach is whether an intermediary device is needed for an android device to talk directly with a phidgets board? My Motrolla Xoom runs Android 3.1 and can talk to many devices via USB using OpenAccessory() OTG. I don't really want to toss all my nice phidgets and start soldering with the IOIO board thoug
Just get it going guys... my robot's brain needs a body it can control!

However, we have not started work on this yet and don't even have an Android device to develop on yet.
Can anyone recommend a good Android development machine that runs 3.0+ and has USB host (preferably something with a netbook/laptop form factor, and preferably with fully powered USB ports)?
