The Raspberry Pi has had some pretty great software upgrades of late, first was the super-speedy Raspbian, then a dash of Google Chrome, and now a big chunk of Ice Cream Sandwich. Android 4.0 is coming to your slice of Pi real soon.
I have to say, the idea of having an almost up-to-date Android-powered smart TV for under £30 is really, really appealing. I’ll hold my hand up and say I’m no hacker — I neither have the skills nor the patience to toil away at that kind of thing — but getting Android 4.0 running might be the gateway drug I need to get me into it.
Right now, hardware-accelerated graphics and video are running smoothly, but there are a few more things to work out. Hopefully the developer, Naren, can get everything done and dusted quickly so we can get our Ice Cream Sandwich-on soon. In the mean time, check out the video — it really doesn’t look half bad, and pretty fast too, all things considered. [Raspberry Pi]
