I bet with a wee bit o' hacking it would be possible. The Xoom is powered by an nvidia video chipset...so eve + modded wine + xoom? bet someone will do it. :-)

If it's a x86 architecture, yes.

Else, forget that.

As he said ^

- It has to be an x86 platform, cause the eve client only runs on this
- Android has no X11 or X11 compatibility
- Android has no standard Linux Userland

No way around the first one without CCP or massive performance loss

Probably under a massive performance loss, but think I heard someone running eve on smartphones by optimizing some remote desktop clients, so running it on a regular computer and using pad\phone as a thin client.

It's going to happen, they actually showed something at fanfest ressembling the eve engine on a xoom tablet, runnung natively of course, and on an arm processor.

Yeah, saw that too. But i'm not sure if it was just a small app that rendered a model of a titan. It wasn't the game itself. But if they show that it prob means the are working on a solution and that will hopefully be a native one.

When you look at it, it's probably a deal between ccp and nvidia for bringing the carbon thing to tegra2 goodness. I wouldn't be surprised if we see more carbon stuff in the coming years ported to android and tablets in general.

And there's the whole new UI stuff; probably making it easier to play on touch screens...
