Recommendation on board to embed android?

 Is there a list somewhere of embedded boards that support Android?

The context is that I'd like to play with some hardware running
Android as a hobby, to put it in my car. Minimal power
consumption/heat dissipation would be appreciated but not a big issue.
Touchscreen would be requirement, as well as minimal size and USB for
adb. A couple IO ports to plug sensors later would be nice, although I
don't have any clear idea on what I want there -- it's mostly to toy
around, e.g. an accelerometer would be a good start but I don't expect
embedded boards to have that kind of stuff.
I've seen many posts here but generally they are about people having
porting issues, so I'd rather select a board that I know will work
mostly out of the box since I don't particularly enjoy kernel hacking.
Any recommendation?

1. How to override activity transition effect with non-res animation?

Hi all, I have a question about activity transition effect.
As far as I know, there is one method to change activity transition
effect, which is 'overridePendingTransition' in Activity class. But
the only parameter I can use is 'animation resource id', meaning that
the animation is limited to Tween Animation.

The animation I'm thinking is the one rotating around Y-axis at the
center of the screen, but I dont' know how I can implement this only
with Tween Animation. Does anyone know how?

I know that I can make that kind of animation effect with code, so I'm
wondering if I can use code for activity transition.

Great thanks in advance. =D

2. Menu always Displayable

Hi,

I want options menu should always display, when  I open my
application, for that I put openOptionsMenu(), in onCreate() of the
launcher activity.  But its showing exception.

--android.view.WindowManager$BadTokenException: Unable to add window
-- token n
ull is not valid; is your activity running?

Then I put openOptionsMenu() in onResume(), still its throwing
exception.

Any idea how to make menu displayable always.
