Written by Slobodan Simic

Oh, the sweet irony

The tablet proud and joy of Intel/Microsoft cooperation, the ExoPC 11.6-inch tablet that originaly shipped running Windows 7 which is paired up with Intel's Pineview-M N450 CPU has been hacked and booted running Android 2.2 Froyo OS.

The information is scarce but one of the users at at ExoPC forum managed to get the Froyo up and running quite nicely. There aren't any detailed instructions and the only thing that can be seen are a lousy picture and video of the device but we are quite sure that the rest will follow up pretty soon.

The device is happily working and it looks like that WiFi and touch-screen are working quite well. You can find out more here.

definitely seems to be a calibration problem as i can click things close to the top of the screen by touching the bottom, but whats weird is i booted up once and the calibration was spot on perfect but havent duplicated the result again at all after 20 or so boots


worked once, and hasn't worked since.if thats working happily....
seems you didn't care to look past the first couple of comments.
either way it seems easily fixable.

Custom stuff doesn't work immediately , it takes some time to write a driver properly .
