(It is believed) Android OS will be able to run on platforms other than mobile phones. I have heard news about running Android on netbooks. Can Android run on VOIP phones, desktop PCs and other hardware? Is there a group or community dedicated to such a thing?

If anyone has any link or suggestions please share..

thanks.

Apparently there's a set-top box and a netbook in the works.
Here's some FAQs about the prospects of Android netbooks from some guys who got it running on a Asus EEE.
