By Martijn | | Latest News, Media Centre, XBMC

So as an XBMC Team member I think it’s my duty (and also proud) to make this post to say XBMC for Android is coming. Still a lot of work has to be done and it is only available for the ones that can compile it themselves.

Then one day in March a friend sent me a link to a YouTube video that would change the whole way …
