Check out Amarino, which is a toolkit to connect Android phones to Arduino microprocessor boards. Described as "basically consisting of an Android application and an Arduino library which will help you to interface with your phone in a new dimension. You can build your own interfaces almost without any programming experience."

Been playing w/Amarino for a few days - supposedly it works w/SparkFun's BlueSmirf - haven't got my HTC Hero communicating yet (incomplete BlueTooth stack impl?) but the the following event types look VERY promising:

Compass - Sends heading in degrees [0-359] 0=North, 90=E, 180=S, 270=W
Orientation Sensor - Sends orientation data in degrees [azimuth, pitch, roll]
Accelerometer Sensor - Sends acceleration data in m/s^2 [x, y, z]
Magnetic Field Sensor - Sends magnetic field data in micro-Tesla [x, y, z]

anyone know what the usability of an android phone is while unactivated. Might be interesting to buy a verizon droid with a bad esn and just use it as a(n amazing) pda. Especially if you can still access all the features from wifi

The Nexus looks pretty sweet too! Sony will use Andriod too? Sweet!
