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."

If you don't want a cell phone you can also get an Archos with android:

Is better because it has Video inputs and you can record your FPV missions on the 160Gb internal hard drive. Also has GPS, WIFI, Bluetooth, 3.5G wireless for internet and of course is TOUCH SCREEN!

I have a T-Mobile G1,very handy unit, I like the keyboard, 1.5 year old with no problems, upgrading to 8gb now, Apps are great, IP Web Cam app is great. GPS Status is cool too. Possibly with a xBee USB connection make a nice mini GCS, Android Google Earth app is ready to go... Amarino library is now ready. I wanted either an Android or iPhone. I'm glad I didn't get a iPhone. I browse DIY Drones too.
