Google Announces Arduino based ADK for Android Hardware Development.


I am thinking this is going to be a good thing for both Arduino and Google.

Now i have to get myself a tablet to play with.  ;D


I don't understand the $400 price point..

Personally I wonder if Atmel have the production capacity to support it* if it really takes off.

I mean I am an Arduino user, but I bet this decision had more to do with ideology then engineering practicality.

* At least it is based off the Arduino MEGA and so doesn't use the DIP versions which are nearly always out of stock. Every major Arduino board maker has a non-DIP version these days, besides that being slightly against the user friendliness of Arduino, because of the supply problems for DIP ATMega168/328.

Because they can? :P Pick up the Microchip board at a fraction of the cost http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=1406&dDocName=en553673
If I has a Android phone I'd jump right on the bandwagon, unfortunately nothing like this exists for the iphone with it's locked down hardware :(
