Poll: Android Pi – Your thoughts?

Android Pi?
Here’s a poll that has been running on Gadget Master’s sister-blog, Eyes On Android – The union of Raspberry Pi and Android

It was spurred by the news that the Raspberry Pi platform is getting a doubling of RAM, to 512MB, with the suggestion that this will enable it to accommodate Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and take it out into the mobile space…

“The extra memory also enables higher performance applications and services – there is real potential to do things like add a touchscreen, then a power back and suddenly the Pi becomes mobile,” said Mike Buffham, global head of EDE for Premier Farnell.

What are your thoughts about the possible merger of these systems. Is Android on the Pi a welcome inevitability or is it mis-conceived, with other, specifically customised hardware platforms providing a more suitable home for Android software?… Will people find a practical use for the “Android Pi” or will it just be hobbyists porting the software because they can?…

Have your say!
