We have a system for adding vendor/product ids to recognize as Android
devices, which is ok.  But it would be better if there was a generic
way of recognizing Android devices, either by the USB information they
expose via HAL (or devicekit-disks) or by their filesystem layout.

Can you run "hal-device | grep -i android" and see if it returns
anything?  For my G1 dev phone, I have

udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_serial_HTC_Android_Phone_HT851N003062_0_0'
info.product = 'Android Phone'
storage.model = 'Android Phone'

and more.  We could just look for Android in any of those fields.
