I have done no research on this but would an android phone work?

I only thought about it because I read an article yesterday about this


Now that I look at the specs its only a 500mhz cpu but other android phones I think have faster ones. and the 32gb sd card limit might be a bit small for a well used file server but if not now I can imagine something like this being useful in the future for this kind of purpose.
