Android Ice Cream Sandwich becomes Raspberry Pi
Little computer eats Ice Cream Sandwich
The Raspberry Pi Foundation reports that the Razdroid project, part of its developer community, has got most Android 4.0 (Ice Cream sandwich) running on its credit card-sized educational computer, writes Steve Bush.
According to the Foundation’s website, hardware video acceleration is up and running, leaving audio as the only major part not working.
The code is not yet publically available, but there is a (coincedently soundless) video to watch.
Raspberry Pi was originally designed to run Linux.
Coming from the opposite direction, the Linux community has got Ubuntu and several other distributions working on the tiny MK802, also known as the Android 4.0 miniPC - a ARM Cortex-A8 thumb drive computer similiar to Raspberry Pi - that unsurprisingly ships with Android installed.
