What "Brain" should I chose for my robot?

I am considering a more advanced  "brain" for my Service Droid robot. I know I could use the computer to do all the advanced computing and relay commands to the robot, but if possible, I would like to have an integrated system. So far, I see 3 variants:

1. Raspberry Pi + webcam (+ screen?)
2. Android phone with integrated front camera
3. Android tablet (4.3" screen) + OTG adapter + webcam

Sphinx 4

Ok so I downloaded Sphinx 4 and I am attempting to use it with Java. I am using Eclipse and this is all going down on a Windows XP. I have downloaded everything I need but I can't seem to figure out which JAR files I need in my library in Eclipse. I was wondering if someone who has some experience with Sphinx could offer some insight into how to get everything set up and running so I can start coding. I basically need to know which JAR files I need in my library. Thanks for the help!

pager motors (still inside cell phones)

I have some gutted mobile phones (mostly Nokias I think), so I can part with:

LCD's

surface mount LED's

motors (same as inside the GM10's)

speakers/mic's (the speakers used for the ring signal are small and obnoxiously loud, but need a strong amp)

These are the parts I instantly recogniced as usable for roboteers, but the phones are basically just partly disassembled but complete, so there are obvious more parts than the ones mentioned here.
