Google Android as a FE Platform
I can be the only one to think of this, but can the Google Android platform be used as a platform for a Front End?
I know that it is possible to run Android on a non-ARM x86 processor.
I do know that the software API is very well accepted for third-party apps.
I know that the Archos 5 Internet Tablet is amazing.
All the low level stuff is there, support for bluetooth and GPS.
Now make a OS, interface, that is quick to boot, has great media playback capabilities, I think you are talking about an amazing piece of open-source software.
Tell me if i am wrong, please. But I hope that I am not wrong, and such a thing could be done.
