Mmmmm... Pie..... Raspberry Pi to be exact

Back in January and early February there was a lot of interesting news on Raspberry Pi. Like every other technology enthusiast (read "geek") I have been watching the stories and been interested in that little piece of hardware.

"Why" you may ask? Considering that it has video output but no touch screen has lead most of the developer community to focus on why it can't (or shouldn't) support Android. However, it's perfect for creating a droid army to rival that of the Trade Federation <insert evil laugh here>.

Seriously though, I can't think of anything better than a low cost, easily accessible hardware platform to put a Headless Android on.

One problem... it's all sold out. Bother.

Stay tuned for some activity in the near future on porting the Android patches to the Raspberry Pi kernel, minus of course the video subsystem. Let's see what we get, shall we? Headless Raspberry Pi anyone, with Gingerbread crust? Mmmmmm, sounds good to me!

  1. I still can't get a Raspberry Pi. Really depressing. I've got a kernel all ready to go but nothing to boot it up on. Sad, just sad.
