It might be worth comparing features against the Android Vibrator API, see:

http://developer.android.com/reference/android/os/Vibrator.html

This offers a repeat count for the pattern, as well as a simple vibrate 
for so many milliseconds:

     void vibrate(long[] pattern, int repeat)
     void vibrate(long milliseconds)

There is also

     boolean hasVibrator()

    void cancel()

p.s. I have been playing with exposing the vibrator as a restful service 
(no pun intended) as part of my work on a service discovery demo for 
Android phones, which I look forward to an opportunity for showing to 
the DAP WG next week in Santa Clara.
