Banana Phone

I’m debating with myself whether or not to get a new phone. My first smartphone. Probably a Samsung Galaxy Y, the smallest Android phone I know, so that I can squeeze it into my pocket.

I’d like the e-book reader, DropBox and GPS above the other features. I’m also going to install SL4A (Scripting Languages for Android) and QPython to see if I can code and access the hardware such as compass and GPS and program the camera, and see if it can comm with Bluetooth.

Ultimately I’d like to hook it up to Arduino (with Bluetooth shield) to do real things like robot around while the phonecam snaps pictures, with QR used to tell it to turn left or right.
