Raspberry Pi gets Android OS Support

Raspberry Pi has been one of the greatest inventions of our time for users who want to learn about computing, programming, coding, and just about everything else related to computers.

The Raspberry Pi is a tiny ARM computer that is mostly branded at those wishing to learn or have a multitude of DYI projects that are waiting to get started. It provides open source software, comes in a small size, and has ports and various boards.

The latest is the Raspberry Pi 3, which goes for $35. It comes with a 1.2GHz 64-bit Broadcam BCM2837 ARMv8 CPU, 1GB RAM, a VideoCore IV GPU, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1. It also allows users to add components via external devices, such as a MicroSD card.

Raspberry Pi have mostly have had Linux support and recently Windows 10 IoT core support though Google has officially given support for Android on the Raspberry Pi. The company recently registered the Raspberry Pi 3 as a new device tree in its Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository.

The support on Android will give access to Pi users to the million plus apps and who knows that support might mean access to DayDream, Googles newest VR developers platform in the near future.
