You do realize that
They are using Android-IA as the base of ConsoleOS...
Android-IA was released in Aug. 2012.......with 12 different iterations before ConsoleOS went to
kickstarter claiming all the following after having worked on it for 18 months....so they started in January 2013
time frame...and this is a "a Developer Release right? The thing is still essentially in pre-alpha development-wise."
and they sold people the following:
- We’ve taken Android apart, and put it back together for your PC. Console OS is a fork of Android designed
to take everything that has made mobile awesome and bring it back to your PC.
- Production-grade Android on the Desktop
worked for the past 18 months to make sure everything from (optional) multi-touch to Miracast™ works great.
- We fully support many popular multi-touch displays that can turn the smallest to the largest desktops into
giant multi-touch Android devices. And no, you don’t need a multi-touch display for Android to be awesome on
your PC - we’ve made the UX both multi-touch and non-touch friendly.
- Out of the gates, we will support (over!) 25 iconic Laptops, PCs, x86 tablets and convertible devices with
Console OS. And, here they are:
Acer: Aspire S7
ASUS: Transformer Book T100, T300
CircuitCo: Minnowboard MAX
Dell: XPS 11, XPS 12, XPS 13, and XPS 15, Venue 8 Pro, Venue 11 Pro
Gigabyte: Most BRIX Models, H87-ITX, Z87-ITX
Intel: Next Unit of Computing (all NUC models except for Celeron 847)
Lenovo: Miix 2 8-inch, Miix 2 10-inch, IdeaPad U430p, ThinkPad X1 Carbon, Yoga 2, Yoga 2 Pro
Sony: VAIO Tap 11, VAIO Pro 11 & 13

- We’re featuring support for all the innovative hardware that x86 systems rock on the desktop, even
advanced features like Miracast, HDCP, HDMI mirroring, dual-display, 4K with DisplayPort, ARM NDK
app compatibility, and native hardware-accelerated H.264 decoding.
Unlike some rollouts, we had a Plan B for issues. A new Kickstarter update just sent out - both on the site and to your email. Enjoy! (must have forgotten where they hid it..............???????????)
