Very interesting. I have started something similar with my osm2go 
project on the nokia internet tablets. The horse power of these 
both plattforms should be fairly similar (android even runs on the 
nokia devices). Since xml parsing and rendering (incl. antialiased 
graphics and transparent layers like potlatch does) are pretty cpu
intense taks, osm2go can easily bring the device to its limits.

It'll be very interesting to see how your Java project performs in
