Re: Android + Raspberry Pi + Microcontroller = Intelligent gadgets with everything possible

<r>I once ran Android 1.6 running on HTC Touch Cruise (P3650) phone using a Qualcomm MSM7200, 400MHz (ARMv6) and 128 MB of RAM. I suppose it should be possible to port Android 2.3 on the Raspberry Pi, although the performance may not be optimal.<br/> <br/> Edit: This is discussed in more details the...

Re: We need Standards!

<t>What should be beneficial is a standard distribution and development tools that most people use with proper documentation and support. Raspberry Pi could say they only officially support that distro, for example Fedora since Redhat is apparently optimizing it for the Raspberry Pi.<br/> <br/> Sinc...

I guess 12 hours or less, if the ordering system can handle it.

Re: A process controller for Bank security doors

Putting the security issues aside, the Raspberry Pi hardware (and Linux) would actually be overkill for such application and simpler and cheaper boards with MCU could be used instead e.g. STM32F4-Discovery.

<r>If you want to get started, you\'ll need<br/> <br/> 1. an ARM cross-compiler, e.g. <URL url="https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/package8734/public/arm-none-eabi/arm-2011.03-42-arm-none-eabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2"><LINK_TEXT text="https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/a ... nu.ta...

Re: Need for an App store for RB programmers

<t>There's nothing wrong with selling Linux software. Montavista even sells its modified version of the Linux kernel by including it in some subscription. If you don't be the subscriptions, you won't be able to access their kernel source.<br/> <br/> Having said that, many companies simply use open s...

Re: The shop is online - come and buy a sticker!

I\'ve been to Royal Mail price finder. I can see surface mail is available for international shipment. It can take about 8 weeks (to Thailand), but for people who are sensitive to shipping costs this could be an option as it is about twice as cheap.

Re: Adobe discontinuing Flash for mobile

<t>I thought flash was not available for ARMv6 as I could not install flashplugin-nonfree via apt-get in my emulator running Debian. So it\'s good news to learn Raspberry Pi will support part of flash.<br/> As for HTML5, I\'ve seen some impressive demos. It\'s supported by all new browsers so flash ...
