Android with GHI's .NET Micro Framework solutions

Android Open Accessory:
The Android 3.1 platform (also backported to Android 2.3.4) introduces Android Open Accessory support, which allows external USB hardware (an Android USB accessory) to interact with an Android-powered device in a special "accessory" mode. When an Android-powered powered device is in accessory mode, the connected accessory acts as the USB host (powers the bus and enumerates devices) and the Android-powered device acts as the USB device.

GHI Electronics' Solution
One of the various exclusive value-added features that GHI offers with .NET Micro Framework solutions is USB Host capability which is needed to access Android devices.
