BUG 2.0 platform with Android support outed

BUGLabs, maker of the modular, Linux-based electronic device has released a second-generation base, the BUG 2.0, at the Mobile World Congress show on Monday. Most notably, the new hardware allows users to run apps developed for the open-source Android operating system or create their own. At the same time, it is based on the Cortex A8-based OMAP3 platform from Texas Instruments, making the device faster and more usable.

TI's BeagleBoard apps will also be compatible with the BUG 2.0 platform. BUGLabs caters to developers who can test out their code and programs on the device. The second-generation hardware adds power, support and more compatibility for companies or individuals that test new portable electronics devices.

Despite the introduction of BUG 2.0, BUGLabs has not revealed pricing or a release date. The existing add-on modules will be compatible with Bug 2.0, however. [via CrunchGear]
