STRaND-1 smartphone nanosatellite from SSTL and SSC
It's basically a satellite that's an external Android peripheral, and they're chucking it into space with a phone attached. Impressive.

Larva Labs - Intelligent Home Screen
"Larva Labs proposes an intelligent home screen that creates a meaningful hierarchy out of a user’s information. Designed for an Android-based handset, our home screen is intended to appeal to Blackberry owners and people struggling with information overload." An interesting experiment; I like being able to vary the level of personalisation on the fly, but am not sure the screen is nearly dense enough for people with "information overload" - it only handles a couple of items in each category without drilling down. The Blackberry's appeal in part is due to its hyper-dense list of information.
