Gingerbread for x86 released: Android 2.3 for your PC

January 26, 2011

Gingerbread may only be on one commercially available smartphone right now, but if you fancy Android 2.3 on your PC then there's already a suitable build. The Android-x86 project has managed to craft an early - but functional - Gingerbread release for Intel processors.

Right now sound and WiFi work, but ethernet, 3D and mouse control are still works-in-progress. It's the handiwork of cwhuang, and you'll need a 64-bit build environment and Java 1.6.

    Android has been out for x86 for a while. Nothing great but if you have an old tablet pc and want to play with something new for a change its interesting… need drivers for old touch screens though. Had 2.1 running on an old viewsonic tablet pc.
