[Video] SailfishOS on the Acer Iconia tab W500

Sailfish is slowly opening up its sails (you get the pun?) and sailing off to new hardware. Below is some information and video from Sfiet Konstantin about his port ont0 the Acer W500:

This time, I’m running the Sailfish SDK simulator image on the Iconia tab. I reused the HW adaptation that I created for the Mer one, with some new additions, A kernel that supports Radeon, and the free Mesa driver, compiled for Radeon as well.
I got a lot of stuff for free, like touchscreen driver, wifi driver, accelerometer, and could finally touch Sailfish OS on real HW. And it is really really nice.
