It could be good to have Android on our Nspire  :D

That doesn't mean that I dislike Android on phones, tablets, or smartwatches, but it certainly doesn't need to run on anything it is not made for ;)

It's mostly for the f*** yeah factor. Same for gnu/linux. The Nspire being so restricted, a kernel that allows direct hardware access, maybe even support multi threading but not multi tasking is much more efficient.

Yeah it's more to show that it's possible to run Android on a calculator. I wish this platform was not locked-down so that people with OS 4.0 could also benefit from it, though.

I wonder how much RAM does Android need? Because The HP Prime has a much faster processor than the TI-Nspire. Maybe it could handle ANdroid better if it requires less than 32 MB of RAM?

Google has a specification for every major release, but i can't find an official list of all the version specifications so
i just refer you to this question: http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/34958/what-are-the-minimum-hardware-specifications-for-android

Oh thanks, tgat could be handy. The Prime apparently has 2D hardware acceleration so I bet performance would be considerably better, but I fear that RAM would be a problem. Also even with a wifi dongle, you would have to forget about Facebook because it's several times larger than every Android version combined.

Why would you want facebook on a calc? :P
(Imo its one of the worst social medias available)

Absolutely my opinion.

I am one of the only Facebook member here. No wonder why our FB page only has 12 likes. O.O

I use Facebook but not actively. Maybe we'll get some exclusive project that will add some views and likes. Maybe you should do community project updates on YouTube and post them.


DJ Omnimaga

That could work, although it would be a considerable amount of work, especially if I need to convert all screenshots or worse, make them.

It's probably the other way around, considering facebook was around way before instagram

I'm pretty sure that Facebook changed their feed a few years ago. Not absolutely sure but I seem to remember less random stuff then I get now.
