If we are following that logic, then I would say that the engine in the Porsche is a VW as well and the argument becomes cyclical.

Besides, it isn't just a way to earn a few bucks from donations. These guys just love a challenge.

It is certainly good enough, that if you aren't going to benefit from the Android advantage, that you shouldn't bother, but it isn't a huge selling point.

I plan on using my TP for very little. Web browsing, checking e-mail, movies/music while traveling, and that is about it. For those purposes, it is a great OS. If I start integrating more entertainment purposes, a stable Android port is in my future.
One thing that the TP and the iPad have going against them is the 1 home button. The 4 buttons on an Android device are huge, to me, in making it so much easier to navigate.
