Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on the OMAP4 Pandaboard

Posted by Charbax – November 17, 2011

Texas Instruments released this video showing that Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 now already boots fine on the OMAP4430 based $179 Pandaboard which you can buy at http://pandaboard.org. I expect that we might see Desktop-optimized user interfaces and a full Chrome web browser soon, maybe with Android 4.1 or 4.2. As I also think it's important for every ICS smartphone to turn into a "desktop mode" when using the HDMI output and when a keyboard and mouse are detected.

    That’s nice! And fast dev work.. They also got ICS running on Snowball dev board. Here’s a link to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvRg6OX0DL8&feature=player_embedded

    No thanks! I’m just happy to be any help. I happen to have Snowball SoC and I watch really close its development.

    I agree that making ics woks for phone, tablet and desktop is excellent and it can differentiate itself from IOS.

  • does the board now support Adobe Flash Video/Games?

  • it is really interesting to read this article
