Instead of porting android to kindle, why not port the nook or sony android to the kindlez/ It would be easier 'cause nook & sony android are already optimized for ereaders. The things left to do would be:
1. Changing drivers for optimizing to the kindle hardware
2. Make some other changes to make it compatible with kindle.

Nook's CPU is not i.MX so the Android ported on Nook Simple Touch will not be easily and straightforwardly be portable to Kindle Touch that (uses Freescale i.MX508).

On another note, boy oh boy! I didn't know this:

Quote:
The i.MX50 family of chips is based on a Cortex A8 CPU, with a base speed of 800MHz and a NEON co-processor. Two of the chips, the 507 and 508, will have have the new support for E-ink screens integrated into the chip. They will also be keeping support for LCD screens, so what we have here is a chip that could drive a dual screen tablet (like the mythical Amazon tablet I mentioned yesterday).
So, what the hell are we doing. We should be really working on Android port to little KT! I, for one, am pumped and motivated to work on this project once again. Who's willing to help?

Space reserved for good references I find. Bear with me!
Also, feel free to add stuff in this thread. I really want to get this thing done ASAP with as much help as possible from our awesome community.

I know absolutely nothing about the subject.

Never stopped me before though... I am at least willing to help test?
I think I have the android development suite installed on my machine AFAIK.

IIRC the nook simple touch I have exposes the level of andoid to the google play site so I could at least feed that back... likely level to aim for...

Back in a hour or two Ill have a look.

All it took was 3, full time CS engineers with a full set of device documentation.

That should keep our readers busy for the winter (even if they get lab126 to release the hardware documentation).
