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?

 This is the perfect device for you. 

As they already have android running on this board.

1. Custom view - canvas height incorrect?

To simply debugging of my custom View, I'm trying to draw a border
around it so I can see its exact size/position.
The left and right sides of the border draw correctly, but the top and
bottom end up outside the screen by about 50 pixels.
My guess is that canvas.getHeight() isn't accounting for the
notification bar at the top. What am I doing wrong?

Here's my code:

protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas)

                Log.w("", "canvas bounds:" + canvas.getClipBounds() + ", width/
height: " + canvas.getWidth() + ", " + canvas.getHeight());

                //draw border
                canvas.drawLine(0, 0, canvas.getWidth(), 0, mBorderPaint);
                canvas.drawLine(canvas.getWidth(), 0, canvas.getWidth(),
canvas.getHeight(), mBorderPaint);
                canvas.drawLine(canvas.getWidth(), canvas.getHeight(), 0,
canvas.getHeight(), mBorderPaint);
                canvas.drawLine(0, 0, 0, canvas.getHeight(), mBorderPaint);

Here's the output of the log statement:

10-24 02:01:35.488: WARN/(1300): onDraw called: canvas bounds:Rect(0,
0, 320, 430), width/height: 320, 480
