Hacking Android to run on Windows Mobile devices isn’t new, but if you’ve got an HTC Kaiser (aka AT&T’s tilt), a Vogue, Niki or Polaris lying in a drawer somewhere then how does Android 2.1 sound? Over at XDA-developers arch-modder Sim4996 has been working on getting the Google OS running on the ageing WinMo devices, and with just a few remaining issues it’s all working well.
Bluetooth is proving unstable, and the camera doesn’t currently work, but otherwise Android 2.1 plays nicely; WiFi, GPS, standby and – most importantly – the phone all work. Of course, it also erases Windows Mobile in the process, so don’t attempt the install if you were hoping to flip between the open-source OS and Microsoft’s.[via Hack a Day]
