Help Me Find a Touch Screen Interface to my music collection.

I am looking for a touch screen interface to my music collection. Ideally I would like a touch screen/tablet, preferably an Android device, that can act as a front end to my music collection that is located Unbuntu. Ideally I would like to see all my albums as album art and all you would need to do is touch an album to play it.

I'd also like of course to show albums by genre, artist, etc. The touch scree/tablet would plug directly into my stereo system and wirelessly connect to the PC. I sort of have this at the moment with my Squuezebox and Squeezebox Radio, but the interface is too 'clunky' for me and has an extremely low 'wife acceptance factor'. Access to Internet radio would be a nice to have. As I say being able to access an Ubuntu server is a strongly preferred, but the key requirement is a touch screen interface. Albumplayer
seems to have the right interface, but it requires Windows and I can't work out what sort of screen it requires.
I have mostly FLAC files, but also an assortment of other filetypes such as .mp3, .wmv, .aac, etc
I am not an audiophile as such, so high-end playback is not essential.
Any help, pointers much appreciated.
