PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Android, a complete operating environment based upon the Linux V2.6 kernel, promises to be a market-moving open source platform that will be useful well beyond cell phones. In this article, learn about the Android platform and how it can be used for mobile and nonmobile applications, then build your first Android application. This simple first app you build will get you started quickly, but beleive me, you'll want to do more after that.

Yes you can do this. Android is really f-ing cool that way. You can write a phone dialer app and have it handle the intent for incoming calls and then you can do whatever you might dream up. The only problem is what someone else mentioned which is that you would get charged for minutes. However if you had an unlimited plan this would be pretty awesome since you could implement voicemail on the client side and have it sync with some email type interface you could access and interact with from any web browser, filtering of certain numbers, blocking, playing "on-hold" music, rules for different callers and locations (in meeting room #1 and my calendar says board meeting? always go right to voice mail)

Etc. You can do whatever you want on android.
