The microcontroller supplier Microchip has announced that they will be releasing dev kits that will allow you to create, test and deploy accessories for your Android devices.

The starter kits will allow for 16 and 32 bit development, and will allow you to make such things as GPS devices, audio docks, glucose meters, and credit card terminals.
