It seems a perfect platform for Android Platform Development. Kernel sources for Android 4.0.4 are available and Linaro seems to support it too.
My first attempt will be to be aware of the potential of the board and on the stability/reliability of the system.
Then tackle down the missing features and/or bug fixes that would make it a perfect device for:
- Mini PC (focusing on support for webcams, enabling video calls, chat apps)
- Android Gaming Console (it seems to work properly)
ODROID-X is more or less ready for Android 4.0.4 (I'll confirm when I'll receive it). The missing features can be the support for webcams (at least the ones supported by Linux Kernel having UVC interface) and gamepads (USB HID or BT HID ones).
The webcam support has been studied and Aptina published a whitepaper providing an overview on Android ICS Camera HAL.
Game controllers seem to be already supported.
After the break, gaming capabilities of ODROID-X.
