FezBridge - Android Debug Mode meets Fez Domino

FezBridge is an Implementation of the Android Debug Bridge (ADB)  on a .NETMF device, the Fez Domino from GHI electronics. It is based on the MicroBridge project from Inopia alias Romfont. The ADB is available on most Android phones (Andropid v1.6 or higher). This is one of the advantages against the Android Open Accessory mode. which runs only on a few phones.

Another new forum: FEZ Domino

So, you think you can handle the FEZ Domino? Oh what a beautiful world: Now you have your own forum to talk about it.

Be kind to future readers: tag your posts. Two tags for this board are already created. You would like to reuse them, like the environment friendly botbuilder that you are!

Starting with .NET Micro Framework

My current project is a start here robot with .NET Micro Framework using a FEZ Domino board from GHI Electronics. The FEZ Domino is pin compatible to Arduino, but has more processing power (ARM7 core with 72MHz clock), 3 UART, 2SPI USB host and micro SD-Card support.

After building some Arduino based robots I think it's time for a change. Before I start build the robot itself some testings were needed to find out if the FEZ Domino is a worthy successor for the Arduino and can I use my existing Arduino shields.

FEZ Domino

I just ordered a FEZ Domino from Sparkfun  http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9797 And was wondering if anyone here at LMR has any experience with it?
If I get it working it will replace the two Arduinos in SEA RENDERING http://letsmakerobots.com/node/21098 and hopefully give me a more robust platform for further development of the boat.
