Touch screen alternative

Sun May 25, 2014 3:39 pm

Instead of adding a touch screen control panel to my home automation project (which has a web interface), I am thinking of using a cheap android tablet with wifi, possibly remove its internal battery (if it can be done) fix it an a wall and power it directly from a 5v dc source.

1. Do you think this is a good idea?
2. Has anybody done something similar?
3. Any recomendations for a good enough tablet?
