All at the same time on one screen? I think you need to look into getting several different single board computers. Some are into Android, and some are not. Some have more support than others. Research it and pick up a few and test them out, it's not like they cost $2300.jman316 wrote:This is my ideal set up....
Have Android installed on the pi...and then use it to play games...skype and watch some media (kodi).
Your ideal setup is to use your PI as a POINT & GRUNT device... K. You realize, I hope, that it was designed to encourage you to do your own research, code your own programs, and make something yourself, right?jman316 wrote:This is my ideal set up....
Nice. Well, that won't work ...jman316 wrote: ... [have] Android installed on the pi...and then use it to play games...skype and watch some media (kodi).
You could do a search for Pine64 on google, place your order (they are taking orders now for KickStarter delivery in May... maybe its June now... and then (maybe) you will get a Pine64 board in the mail in a couple of months (I'm still waiting for mine) which runs Android brilliantly... if you can get it of course !jman316 wrote: As I understand it Android is not usable on the RPI at the moment so im searching for another option.
There are lots of things you can do with Raspbian... do some searching and some reading. Skype & gnu+linux are having a falling out of late (thanks to Micro$oft) not to mention there may not be a binary for Arm, nor sources for building it yourself... but then, I don't use Micro$oft products.jman316 wrote:Would RASPBIAN let me install Skype and Kodi within it?

You are most welcome.jman316 wrote:Thanks for your help in advance
You can run different programs on a pi, but when you want to switch to different operating systems, there are delays, here android one minute and normal linux the next, but it could go to just distributions of linux, like I think you are getting at with the kodi thing. I understand that you've got your phone and you do this and you do that, oh, someone's ringing me up. I get that. But with your more, no less portable system, why does it have to just be the one thing? You don't have to hold the pi in your hand, you've got room for a pi or two, a couple of android boards, whatever, right?jman316 wrote:No essentially what I mean ( please bare with me as Im not a techie )
On Android on my phone...I can run Skype no problem. And Kodi...
So im thinking if I had Android ( or maybe some flavour of Linux) I could do the same...
Does this make sense?
