Yeah, we're aware of that, but since Android has been ported to damn near every new piece of hardware lately, we were just speculating why they moved to different hardware, thereby making it probably damn near impossible for current WinCE Dynavin owners from updating the WinCE side to Android.

From what I have heard, it is using a board designed to run Android, from TI, and therefore probably beefier and better suited to run Android than the WinCE hardware. Low power suspend ability maybe? (i.e. boot android side, and never turn it off so it's always on and ready to go as soon as you get in the car)
