I am looking for a cellphone sized android device that is not a cellphone. I just want something to mod/overclock/experiment with. does anything like this exist?

^ That, but android comes in different type of hardware. endless possibilities, you can pick up a cheap android device with like 8'' screen for like $100, and get high end stuff for like $300+, it all really depends on what you want to overclock, i would say get an ipod touch and jailbreak, then install android ( ipod touch 1g, you can pick them up for cheap) and have fun modding, modding iphone/itouches are really fun.

Edit:

You can even install android on a pc (Dual boot) just to play around and get he fell of modding it. could help in the long run.

the only cellphone with 2.2 is the nexus one. any android phone that has a flashable os can probably run 2.2. I would just need to compile a generic build of 2.2 using the instructions provided by google, and load it on.

so buy a g1 used for ~$100 and attempt to install 2.2 on it

sad but true story: I got approved for a developer model of the tegra 2 board, but can't afford the $400 single unit price.
I really want something like the samsung galaxy s minus the 3g radio.

Dell have said they are gonna give OTA 2.2 update soon...

looks like you will need a plan with a cell carrier to have one. epic looking device though.

I have a Chinese-knockoff of an iPad. It came running Android AND it has USB + SD card ports (more features than the real thing!)
