Raspberry Pi is great. Is a microcomputer as big as a credit card with an ARM processor witch run Linux. Some weeks ago on the internet blogs say that Andorid ICS (android 4.0) was ported on this device.
More Tehnical info?

- USB Ports: 2, RCA and HDMI video out
- Audio out: 3.5mm jack and HDMI
- Network 10/100 Ethernet RJ45
The price of this device is just 59.95 US Dollars (price is from Amazon)
You can read mode about this device on the “Raspberry Pi User Guide“ or if you feel like experimenting with it on the “Programming the Raspberry Pi: Getting Started with Python“
Was not long the time we can order the Raspberry Pi without the wainting list. Some use it for projects some for fun but it came with linux and linux is not for everyone when it come to install some new apps.
Now you can make with 35$ the Android mini computer you want or maybe to transform your old TV in a SmartTv with Android apps, youtube, internet browsing, and more.
