Once you have the ability to access the android app store
Sorry to burst your bubble, but Android app store will not be available on this Frankenstein: it's only available on certified devices.
You can create separate app store (like Amazon and Nook are doing), but this will require significant marketing to attract the developers to your store. I don't see anyone with deep enough pockets interested.
I don't expect such things to first show up from the "big boys", they will be trying to do the all singing all dancing single solution to everything. Instead I expect that some of the low-end "knock-off" companies will throw something like this together and start selling it with it working well enough that others will then jump on the bandwagon.
Yup. The only problem: when "big boys" will finally jump on this train they will probably throw away the "regular Linux userspace" to comply with certification requirements.
