Android Sansa?

Why doesn't SanDisk make a Fuse-Android?  If they made a 4.0" screen 16/32 gig memory with an XC expansion slot that ran an android o/s and worked similar to the galaxy, I would buy it in an instant.  One thing, make sure it has plenty or processing power and RAM so that it can run the apps smoothly.

I wonder why SanDisk hasn't dont this yet?

Re: Android Sansa?

There hardware has been based around a similar family of ARM9E chips for several years now. These are not sufficiently powerful to run something like Android, so I think they've preferred to stay with their simpler internal OS. However, I think in the long term, most portable embedded products like the Sansas will go Android as their hardware becomes more powerful.
