Nougat Android 7.0 is only available for several of the Nexus phones, but the vast majority of Android smartphone users have to wait weeks or months to get the official update them ... if they come.
There are other ways to enjoy Android 7.0 Nougat, and that is where the Raspberry Pi 3 come , they already have available a version of this platform ready to run on them. The owners of this versatile miniPC be accessed by both the news available on Android, although the version is still in full swing.
