Porting Android to a new platform can be a challenge. Here are some resources to start with that:

ARM

Most ports of Android are to ARM-based platforms.

OMAP

  • Mentor Graphics and Texas Instruments support Android on OMAP processors via the project
  • See also Android on OMAP, which has a very thorough listing of issues faced in initially porting Android to OMAP

Mips

Mentor Graphics did a port of Android to MIPS.

See http://www.mipsandroid.org

(Unfortunately, this site requires registration.)

x86

There is a whole well-developed project for Android on x86.

See http://www.android-x86.org/

At least one major product (Sony Internet TV) is reported to be x86-based. Intel has a team of developers working on Android issues. See Mark Gross' presentation from ELC 2010 for some tips from them about using Android
