For those who are interested in Arduino-Android interfacing:

It appears FTDI released a chip FT311D that can allow straightforward Android connectivity, with microcontroller/Arduino acting as accessory/USB-host:

They have an app-note detailing the setup:

Definitely planning to order a couple of samples to test it out.

Also, for those interested, they made a bunch of Android-side programs available to demo:

Of particular interest to me is the fact that this chip is directly capable of versatile interfacing types (a few GPIO pins, I2C, SPI, as well as of course UART) on the peripheral side.

Only problem is this part's only available in QFN/QFP footprint
