Android On The iPhone

This is a milestone.  The Android OS is running natively on the iPhone.  It’s still in the alpha stage and it only works on the 2G version (aluminum backing).  In time and with the help of donations, we’ll see it for all versions of the iPhone.  I’ve been waiting for this forever.  Now it’s only a matter of time before we don’t have to toss our old iPhones and save around $500 in the process.  By changing the OS, it opens a whole new world.

As you can see from the video, it is working pretty well for an alpha. It’s freaking smooth.  Calls, wifi, data, and touch are all working.  I would have liked to see the navigation on it as that is one of the great things about Android as well as it’s openness.  Yeah, we’re not stuck with iTunes anymore.  As you can see he mapped some of the buttons differently.  In the end, it looks very promising.  If you’re afraid of doing this or are sick of the OS, you can always revert back to the Apple OS since all you’re doing is dual booting.   Don’t forget to donate so they can speed the process up.  Don’t drool too much cause you’re about to see what’s really “magical”.
