1) What Android-compatible hardware platforms (boards, like "beagle board") can you recommend for hobby robotics? Where can I see a list of Android-friendly boards with support of serial (or parallel) connections?

We are going to move our Java ME robotics project (http:// www.RoboHobby.com) to Android platform, but what hardware to choose?
2) What can you say about support of serial connection on Android- based phones? Does it work in reality? As I remember, in the Java ME world not all cell phones manufacturers supported serial connections on their J2ME implementations. For example serial connections were supported on some models of Siemens and Sony-Ericson, but they were not supported on Nokia and Sumsung, etc.
What is going on with serial connection support in the Android World? Is this supported in reality? On which cell phones?
3) Is it possible to use on Android devices (boards) not BlueTooth/USB conection, but wired connection, like RS232 "COM" port on PC?
I see funny wordplay - Android as a Google project and Android as a human-like robot. :-)
