Nokia N900 gets Android 2.3 Gingerbread port

It's been a while since we've seen Nokia's N900 getting an Android hack - last time it was Froyo on the Maemo smartphone - but this time the NITDroid team have outdone themselves. They've supposedly managed to get Android 2.3 Gingerbread running on the N900.

It's primarily the handiwork of Alexey Roslyakov - aka DrunkDebugger - though not everything is fully functional quite yet. Still, cellular data, sound, WiFi and various other things are working, and he's suggesting that there'll be a stable build released before the end of the year.

    These russian engineers are the new oligarks of the mobile business. They can single-handedly accomplish what hundreds of engineers of a mobile vendor have been unable to come up with. While they spent most of their life from teenager to grown up programming assembler routines in forgotten windowless computer rooms you and other went on with regular life in the easy lane. Now it´s their turn to reap some reward. The spotlight is on these guys who possess all that hard core knowledge few others have dreamed of being able to earn any dimes on. The phone vendors now compete on signing them up.
