  • Just curious - what board does that sample program represent? I don't recognize it.

    Have you perused the Pi forums? I know that some have been asking for Android on the Pi for quite some time, and I wonder what the reaction is to this release.

    Hi Keith,

    This Android release is for various boards but I'm using it with the Raspberry PI 3

    You can see a few more boards with this URL:

    https://developer.android.com/things/hardware/developer-kits.html

    That image you are referring to is a general example that can relate to any board(I think) . I firs thought it was for a Pi but the examples don't specify any particular board.

    Re:Pi Forum

    Not I haven't posted there. This kit was only released late today.

  • There are ports of Android that run on the Raspberry Pi as well as RT Android but with limited functionality. The BeagleBone Black is a better option for run Android.

    However, this looks more like a developer environment which looks interesting.

    A version for the Parallax WX ESP8266 WiFi Module would be cool though.
  • Anyone tried this with the Propeller HAT?

    Tempted to have a go.
    Failure is not an option...it's bundled with the software.
