  • Linux on ARMThe OSRF plans to add ARM support to the Robot Operating System (ROS), starting with the Snapdragon 600 running Linux in Q4, followed by Android in 2015.

  • Linux on ARMThe folks at VolksPC started showing off a software solution that lets you run Android and Debian Linux simultaneously on an ARM-based computer. This lets you use the same machine to run full desktop Linux apps like LibreOffice or Firefox as well as Android apps including Netflix, Hulu Plus, and any number of video games.

  • Linux on ARMLinaro 14.04 release is now available for download. See the detailed highlights of this release to get an overview of what has been accomplished by the Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams. The release details are linked from the Details column for each released artifact on the release information:

  • Linux on ARMLinaro, the open-source development consortium for Linux on ARM architecture, is working on software, tools and drivers that could hasten the release of 64-bit Android. The move is significant because, apart from Apple’s iPhone 5s, no 64-bit smartphones have been announced, a situation that analysts partly attribute to the lack of 64-bit Android for ARM processors, which are the most widely used in handsets and tablets.

  • Linux on ARMWe all love to root for an underdog, especially in tech, where revolutions have so often been launched from garages or dorm rooms. But the past few years, there's been little room for Cinderella stories in the world of tablets and mobile computing as massive monoliths like Apple, Google, and Samsung have come to dominate, and even well-established names like Microsoft and BlackBerry struggle to gain a foothold.

  • Linux on ARMCAMBRIDGE, UK, September 24, 2013—Undo Software, a supplier of Linux and Android software development solutions, today announced that ARM has entered into an agreement to integrate UndoDB in its flagship software development tool suite, ARM® DS™-5 Development Studio.

  • Linux on ARMCompulab plans to launch a mini-computer with an ARM Cortex-A9 processor and support for both Ubuntu Linux and Google Android. It’s called the Utilite, and the computer’s expected to go on sale in August for $99 and up.

  • Linux on ARMFXI Technologies was the first company to ever show an HDMI TV dongle when they unveiled the Cotton Candy in November 2011. Since then, many Chinese companies started to provide similar products at lower cost, and the company further improved the Cotton Candy, which is still powered by Exynos 4210 (dual core Cortex A9), by making it even smaller, and getting rid of the internal flash in the process.

  • Linux on ARMThe Wandboard is a tiny computer or developer board with an ARM-based processor, a wide selection of ports for connecting peripherals, and support for both Google Android and Ubuntu Linux.

  • Linux on ARMTablets wore off their novelty allure years ago, but there are still some ways to make them stand out, both among all other consumer electronics devices and amidst their peers. DaVinci Mobile just used one of those methods.

  • linux on ARMI’ve had several people asking me about running Linux on Android in the last few months, but I did not look into it into details, because I thought we would just be able to run server apps. That is until Rohith left a comment on CNX Software Facebook timeline, that it’s possible to run Linux in Android, and access the user interface via VNC (sort of simple, but I did not think of it).

  • Linux on ARMThe PengPod tablet, which allows for dual-booting Google's Android and Ubuntu/Linaro on an ARM-based tablet, is becoming a reality after it was successfully crowd-funded.
     

  • Linux on ARMThere are plenty of tablet based on AllWinner A10 and A13 processors, but all of them run Android, and you are out of luck if  you want to run Linux on your tablet, unless you hack this yourself. But this is about to change as PengPod will launch 2 tablets and 1 mini PC running Linux from NAND flash or micro SD card:

  • Linux on ARMThe folks at Rikomagic UK sell a mini PC called the MK802 which can run Google Android, Ubuntu Linux, or a range of other operating systems. It features an Allwinner A10 ARM Cortex-A8 processor and HDMI and USB ports for connecting a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

  • Linux on ARMThe MK802 $74 mini PC ships with Google Android 4.0. It also ships with root access enabled, which means it’s possible to delete important system files or make other changes that could leave you with a less-than-useful operating system.

  • Linux on ARMVIA Technologies is entering Raspberry Pi territory with its latest product — the APC. It's a $49 barebones computer designed to run Google Android. The system includes a processor, memory, storage, and a range of ports for connectivity — but no case.

  • Linux on ARMWe are pleased to announce the release of Linaro 12.04. The Linaro 12.04 release highlights the precision, expertise and talent which all of the Linaro Teams – Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams – use to deliver influential updates and stimulating new features that are integrated on top of Android and Ubuntu.

  • Linux on ARMThere's been a great deal of excitement this year about tiny, cheap computers such as Cotton Candy and Raspberry Pi, and no wonder: Linux-powered devices like these are nothing short of a computing revolution, both for the way they make technology more accessible to those who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford it, and for lowering the cost of innovation and experimentation for everyone.

  • Linux on ARMAndroid phones have undergone a transformation over the last few years. Unlike other platforms that often seem reluctant to change, Android phones have only gotten bigger and faster, squeezing even more awesomeness into every cubic centimeter of each passing new generation. Along for the ride are other fun things such as allowing Android users to run software that isn't actually Android.

  • Linux on ARMThe HP TouchPad is capable of running a number of different operating systems. It ships with HP webOS software, but we’ve also seen Google Android and a number of Linux-based operating systems ported to run on the 9.7 inch tablet.
