-- Droidifi, a new entrant in the wireless space, has done the unthinkable!
The company has ported the Android operating system for phones and tablets to common wireless routers from companies like Linksys, Netgear, and Asus.
Wireless router hardware has been a hotbed of activity for hackers and garage coders. After market firmware upgrades for OEM devices abound. Many of these upgrades are free of charge and add dozens of features to common hardware. If your router company does not provide a feature, chances are you will find it available in an independent firmware "upgrade".
A new entrant in these firmware wars is a company called Droidifi. The Droidifi development team has re-architected the Android operating system and created an after market firmware upgrade for wireless routers. Once upgraded the router acts like an ordinary Android tablet. New features can be downloaded and installed via additional Android apps. The Droidifi router's display can be viewed in any web browser that supports HTML5.
