Ceton Echo Getting Android (ICS)
With retail availability just a few days away it turns out that Ceton still has a few tricks up their sleeves – with an announcement going out tonight that they will be adding the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) rev of Android to the Echo. Not much is known about what that means exactly with queries around Play access gleaning nothing useful (I’m hoping that we’ll get Netflix at the very least). Either way it sounds good.
Adding Android Support
Speaking of new features, one of the big projects we’ve been working on is adding the Android platform to Echo! As you might imagine, having Android will give us lots of opportunity to extend the Echo in interesting new ways with more capabilities and apps. Android is not included in this week’s update but we’re working hard to get it out as a Christmas present 🙂 Since you’re probably wondering … it’s the Ice Cream Sandwich version.
