For the Ethiopian reading project we used Motorola Xooms.
I'd give you one but all I have left is 2 broken ones. They support
5Ghz and we ran a TeamEOS build on them.
Actually our build was and earlier build before the name changed to
team-eos. I also ran CyanogenMod 10.0 on the last working one I had.
It works well.
I've built apps but not yet built a full OS build. Building a full tree
requires a pretty beefy machine these days and CyanogenMod >= 10
requires you use a 64-bit os now.

The Xoom has a BCM4329 802.11n WiFi which may not be the best choice for
OLPC is currently investigating running android on the XO-4. I'll let
you know if we actually do a port.
