You have to give it to the Nokia N900. It ranks among the most versatile phones ever – if not actually sitting at the top of the list. While many droids are still stuck on version 1.5, 1.6 and 2.1, the Maemo-powered device has had Android 2.2 (codenamed Froyo) ported to it.
This dude has had OSx, Ubuntu and now Android ported to it. Perhaps we will see Windowsphone 7 when that is available? Who cares anyway? This device is a true herald of what mobile computers will become – open hardware on which an OS of the user’s choice can be installed.
If you are looking for something geeky to pass the time, take a look at the video below of Android 2.2 running on the N900:
Yes; I know you want to ask if I will be giving this a shot. Let’s see…. Nah! I prefer Maemo 5 to Android 2.2. Sorry to disappoint you, guys.
If you are interested in pulling this off though, head over to the NitDroid V2 Development page.
