Developers Port Google Android 2.1 (Eclair) To The Nokia N900

By Jamie Pert - May 12, 2010

It seems that the Android operating system is slowly taking over, and after being successfully ported to an iPhone 3G last week, a bunch of Maemo enthusiasts have now ported the OS to the Nokia N900.

The system seems to be running quite stably, but with limited use such as keyboard support are operational. The two developers, Helmy and DJ_Steve, who are part of the NITDroid project somehow managed to get the kernel and userspace ported to the Nokia Internet Tablet hardware via SD cards to run the OS.

A video has also been uploaded to the Internet to show Android working on the NIT. You can view the short video by visiting the source below.
