MOTO Development Group Demonstrates First-Ever Android / E Ink Integration

The robustness and versatility of the Android open source operating system combined with extremely energy efficient E Ink could prove to be a marriage made in heaven, as this demonstration from labs.moto.com would suggest.

The broadsheet E Ink development kit is connected to the Beagle Board running Android through the use of a custom USB driver developed by the MOTO team.

The potential for such low-power, portable devices could be promising, don't you think?

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Android on E-Ink

Certainly agree that it is exciting. But, just want to point out, that this was not exactly the first ever Android on E-Ink demo. I had done one before, video and details here, Android on E-Ink , plus my demo uses the E-Ink controller and am300 host touchscreen itself rather than using an external beagleboard and keyboard.

Awesome!
