Please more supported devices!
So, I tried to search on Google for "phones that support android accessory mode". You'd think they would have a definite answer. It's their stuff, after all. But no, they don't. This is the best answer I could get:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7256263/which-android-devices-support-the-adk-open-accessory

The manufacturer of the Android phone I got "from Santa Claus" on Dec 9 doesn't answer that question either. It seems to have the right kernel and Android, but that doesn't seems to guarantee compatibility with the Arduino ADK board. Looks like ADK developers will have even harder time building stuff for Android than app developers...

In the meantime, if anyone knows whether Samsung Y (Young) GT-S5360 works with the Arduino Mega ADK board, please let me know.

PS. I know it looks like I'm picking on Android/Google every time I try to do something on the Android platform, but that's not my fault, really. I am searching for answers to simple questions and getting nowhere.

Very interesting!
Higgins with me holding on the sonar and phone pan/tilt where they'll be mounted. The pan/tilt assembly is a bit weak for the phone really. I might remove the battery and place it offboard * which will dump some weight and allow mounting on the flat inner panel.

* The way a phone always runs is very handy. I'm giving some thought to coming up with a way the phone can fire up the rest of the robot including the ADK board. One cheeky way would be to use a very simple circuit plugged into the headphone out. Send a certain tone and it powers up the rest.
