MOTOACTV Rooted, Becomes Watch-sized Android Tablet


Ever wondered what Honeycomb might look like on a 1.6-inch display? Thanks to one hacked MOTOACTV we now have the answer. The wristwatch-sized device is one of the more interesting items we have seen emerge from the Android ecosystem, though out of the box it is rather limited in functionality. Factor in the 600MHz TI OMAP 3630 and 256MB of RAM and there isn’t much to work with. Chris Wade saw the small size and smaller feature set as a challenge and went about hacking the stock Honeycomb launcher onto the MOTOACTV’s Gingerbread base and even managed to shoehorn in Android Market access. This of course means one of the smallest games of Angry Birds we have ever seen. Useful as a micro-tablet? Maybe not so much. A darn cool hack? We think so.
