Raspberry Pi Getting Android 4.0 Soon

by

One of the coolest things about the Raspberry Pi computer is its dirt cheap price of $35(USD). The little computer is certainly no speed demon. You won’t be playing high-end video games on it, but it is more than capable of being a very low cost and small HTPC. One of the biggest downside to the Android-powered device was that it launched with Android 2.3.

Fans of Android always want the latest operating system on their devices. Android 4.0 may not be the latest version of Google’s operating system anymore, as Jelly Bean (4.1) is now available, but Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) is a major upgrade to what the Raspberry Pi came with. Raspberry Pi has announced that an official Android 4.0 version is in the works for the little computer.

According to the blog entry, the operating system is functional on the cheap computer already and the only thing keeping it from being finished is support for AudioFlinger. Raspberry Pi also notes that it is investigating the feasibility of converging its own Android 4.0 implementation and one that is available on GitHub.
