Android for satellites

So, apparently they’re going to control a satellite with a mobile phone, Android driven of course since they want to be able to modify it without getting Apple’s permission (or having to offer the Satellite control App through the iTune App Store, presumably).  I don’t know that it’s actually an HTC Wildfire like mine but they do suggest it’s a sub £300 model so it may well be.  Not sure the camera in mine is really good enough for space photos however, it wasn’t Strictly brilliant for the stars at the O2 on Saturday.
