Dan Morill: No Minimum Requirements for Honeycomb
Rejoice, folks. This tweet from Dan Morrill, Android Open Source & Compatibility Tech lead, means more than meets the eye. This officially opens up all possibilities for custom ROM makers, as there aren’t any minimum processor requirements for Honeycomb.
Before you worry that this will mean a whole bunch of crappy low-end tablets, Google’s Tim Bray says it’s not likely, and to those trying, “have fun on the bring-up and QA.”
But it does say another thing: that the rumors that it would require a dual-core processor are false.
The whole episode recalls LG’s brief assertion that it wouldn’t bring Gingerbread to the Optimus series because of a 1Ghz processor requirement. That myth, too, was dispelled by Dan Morrill via his Twitter account.
