    I have created a video overview showing XBMC running on my ASUS Transformer Prime Android tablet

    [video=youtube;RmttML0LNm4]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmttML0LNm4[/video]

    Tablet specs:

    CPU - 1.3 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3
    Ram - 1GB
    Screen - 10.1" IPS display @ 1280 x 800
    OS - Android 4.0.3

    How it runs:

    For an early build it runs pretty well as you see in the video, plugins such as the BBC iPlayer, Ted Talks and YouTube all work fine. SD Video is perfect, 720p drops a few frames every couple of seconds and 1080p video is very jerky.

    Most of the functionality of XBMC is there it, just need optimising for touch displays and the hardware inside Android phones / tablets.

    That's all really, some random screenshots below. Give it ago if your a fan of XBMC and have an Android device, Download from the Digiex Download Center.

    Top Gear, Futurama and Jack Bauer (24) ay InsaneNutter? It's great to see XBMC become so versatile. I use this on my old Xbox from time to time still and when I get a tablet I'll probably use it on that as well :)
