    The Sony tablet uses a Tegra CPU and not an Intel/AMD chip, so no. The DB
    only works on x86/x64 chips, there's no ARM support yet.

    When the ARM version is finished, do you think we will be able to buy it and install it on current or future ARM-based Android tablets?
     
    Or will it be OEM only?
