We've seen Android implemented in so many proof-of-concept devices that it's almost surprising that no one has cooked up a strictly gaming device based on Android. Enter ODROID. ODROID is an open-source gaming platform based on our open-source Android OS. Built by Handkernel, ODROID will reportedly have the same processor that the iPhone 3GS has along with a 3.5-inch 320 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, HDMI output, composite video output, microSD, SD, and WiFi.

Though it could use some work in the design deparment (what is this 1993?), we think that it's a pretty workable idea. Though the game market in Android isn't as pronounced as the iPhone yet, this is one step in the right direction.
