Unless you have control of hardware and software you will never have a complete soloution..

Clearly, android's use of linux+java, all GPL open source software is a big plus imho. Android will not only be panel but also controllers. Java development will help there as it is meant for connected IP oriented stuff. Google was smart to adopt that.

This also means that the price of a controller with arm7 is the price of a cellphone. The panel is commoditized, the controller will be commoditized. What iOS started, Android will finish.

Oh, and we may see the emergence of standardized stack in the CE community, thanks to a DIY push??? be it, panels, controllers, GoogleTV etc thanks to Android? GASP!!! UN-THINKABLE!
