MSP430 USB connectivity to Android devices via USB 2.0
I have an android tablet/phone that I am wanting to connect to my MSP430 to allow an app to control acutators and send data. I have researched into a couple of routes for obtaining communication between the MSP430 and Android and I found 2 intermediate devices. These 2 intermediate devices are IOIO ( http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10748 ) and a Android ADK (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardADK) but these 2 cost around $50 and they have their own MCU's on board. So i thought I am sure MSP430 can do the same job. I was looking into MSP430F5528( http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/msp430f5528.html) I was thinking this would be a good start. Also I heard ARM based MCU's would be better, is that true? I am new to programming a USB, which I heard is more difficult than USART. Could anyone recommend a good series and which would be easier to program in ARM or MSP430?
I currently have a MSP430FG439 which doesn't support USB connectivity only has USART.
