Raspberry Pi 3 proves to be a really interesting and versatile platform, so as to have already received an early version of Android 7.0 Nougat thanks to the work of a passionate person who brought the code available on AOSP.

While being in front of a first build the result is already impressive seen that the fluidity appears quite good and apart from some crash the system appears to be stable. Obviously it will take further updates and new builds to make the system usable, for which this update is not yet available with all the services of Google, as Google Apps.

Because the operating system appears to be based on AOSP, therefore, Google Apps are not installed, and overall usability is remarkable, despite a few crashes here and there that promises the developer, it will be eliminated in the next build. More information can be retrieved following this link, while there you will also find the download and the source code, as well as a forum to ask for help or simply to share your experience.
