What do you mean by "reasonable price" -- there are already Android
smartphones supporting GPS & GLONASS fusion. Attachment of external
antenna would be a challenge, indeed. Also, they may probably have no 1pps
signal inside (but who knows). On the other hand, you may run your NTP
time provider on the Android phone itself. If you are worried about Java
(Dalvik) VM jitter, let's run in under ARM based Linux native code.
