Yes, we are planning to do something on the Google Phones, but have  
not decided if we want to do it on top of Android (maybe with Dan  
Ingalls JSqueak ?) or bypassing it with SqueakNOS. Maybe we need  
backwards compatibility as well, with hacks like GLMorphic for speed?

In a week or so I will have our roadmap for our project published on  
our website. It is about a full multi touch interface ( http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/65 
  ) integrated with Morphic 3 and with slow devices like mobile phones  
in mind.  In our roadmap you will see that our team (still in the  
process of forming) targets all platforms that can support multi  
touch, like the iPhone, Google Phone, OLPC Xo 2.0 (with two multi  
touch screens http://blog.laptopmag.com/first-look-olpc-xo- 
generation-20 ) and of course Windows, Mac OS X and Linux with the Wii  
as the (first) multi touch device ( http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/245 

Of course this project is a very large amount of coding, and we would  
be very happy if we even get part of this list realized!
Don't interpret this post as a promise that we will actually deliver  
all this. Only time will tell.

If you want to see all this happen, consider participating, the best  
way you can make sure your platform will be supported.
