I am new to this forum and writing first time. We were debating internally about deciding an OS for our chip. We were contemplating between Android and custom embedded linux. Before we decide, I wanted to get answers for following questions:
Q1. Is it possible to remove unwanted libraries and services, how thin or light weight android can be ?
Q2. How much customization is possible for Android libraries--e.g., Is it possible to modify/enhance WebKit to support OpenCV?
Q3. What kind of applications does Android's media framework, StageFright, support?
Q4. Is there any support in Android for gesture based applications? If yes, which framework is used for gesture based applications?
Q5. What are the minimum processor and memory requirements for Android?
Q6. Is android a feasible platform for set-top box platform?
