Android seems to be popping up on everything these days. Netbooks, set-top boxes, embedded devices, washing machines, E-Ink displays, you name it. Of the many available solutions out there it seems that some folks are having great success with OMAP-based solutions such as Gumstix and the Beagle Board. The combination of low power and high performance delivers reasonably efficient Android-based solutions that fit well in tight spaces.
