[Q] Serial Output on Android Phone

Hello! I am new to this forum, I figured you guys may be able to provide some input on a project I want to undertake.

I would like to use an Android phone (Probably an unlocked Chinese model running 2.2) as the brains for a remote control project. Since the phone has a GPS, Camera, and GSM connectivity all built in (and low power consumption) it seems it would be the perfect solution. To control the device, I was hoping connect a serial/usb servo controller (Pololu Micro Maestro) to the phone. However, I am having trouble finding any information on the viability of connecting a serial device to the phone – can this be *reasonably* done?

I appreciate any information you can provide!
