The Raspberry Pi development team has this week released details of an Android 4.0 port they have been working on that will bring Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system to the Raspberry Pi mini PC.
The new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich port which is being developed by Naren at Raspberry Pi, already has support for hardware accelerated graphics and video. You can see the new Android 4.0 port in action on the Raspberry Pi mini PC in the video after the jump.
Eben the founder of the Raspberry Pi project explains: “This implementation uses a different kernel and VideoCore binary image from the one available on GitHub, which is why we’ve been keeping quiet about it so far. We’re investigating the feasibility of converging the two code lines to produce a single common platform as soon as we can, at which point we hope to release the sources for you to play with.”
As more information is released about the new Raspberry Pi Android 4.0 port we will keep you updated as always.
