Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich coming to the Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi users will soon be able to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on their mini computer. At the moment it has hardware accelerated graphics and video, both of which run smoothly.

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.

Hopefully this means within the next few weeks you’ll be able to run Android 4.0 ICS on your Raspberry Pi.
