For some reason we seem to be stuck on the latest handset or tablet and can’t quite seem to break free of the allure of the $500 gewgaw. What happens when you want to read the morning news and aren’t quite satisfied with the handheld screen size? Well, if you’re like Martin Drashkov, you’ll grab some off-the-shelf components and cobble together a proof-of-concept and call it the Android MegaPad. [via Phandroid]

1 thought on “Android on a 23″ Touchscreen

  1. Okay, now fast forward to 2018 and tell me has this project has evolved any? I am currently working on building my own 23″ Android tablet but haven’t been finding the greatest amount of information to do so (that’s how I stumbled upon your page). There are more SBC’s than ever available but finding just the right one to run Android well is somewhat of a challenge. My latest attempt is to use the RPi3 running EmteriaOS (Android 7) but the RPi doesn’t have the guts to run it well… it runs, just not great. But I suppose that’s to be expected from a $30 SBC. Is there a better SBC on the market to build an Android tablet? Ideally, one that will install easily and run with out a bunch of fiddling and no hiccups when using apps? Preferably one that costs less than $100 too. Thoughts?
