Hi Muslim,

the idea is very nice. Feel free to add it to the wiki page.

However, please keep in mind that what we're collecting here are only 
*suggestions* for the students. The actual project has to be chosen by the 
student who applies. Also, the chances for success are closely tied to the 
skills and enthusiasm of this particular student for his/her particular 
project. In case of your proposal, I can certainly see several quite complex 
sub-tasks which are needed to reach the overall goal. Unless some student 
brings quite a lot of know-how related to Android, I rather doubt whether this 
is really feasible within the scope of GSoC. But it should be put on the ideas 
page in any case.
