Android on HTC Touch HD, HP 2133

As developers become more and more anxious to port Android over to devices besides the G1, chances are we’ll be seeing a lot more of these “Android Running On XYZ” kind of videos. While we won’t post about every single one – which would become really. freaking. boring. – we’ll bring you the ones we think you’d most want to see.

And with that, we present you with Android Running On The HTC Touch HD:

It is undoubtedly a Mr. Blurrycam Production and the hyped up music in the background is used to distract you from the fact that nothing is happening. But the fact that Android is ON the HTC Touch HD makes us salivate because it is a phone like THIS that most people want to see as the next (and first if they could go back in time) Android Phone.

A commenter warns that the above video could ACTUALLY be the HKC “dual boot” knock off phone so let us know in OUR comments if you see proof for one or the other.

Up next we have Android running on the HP 2133 netbook:

A nice little follow up to our Android Netbooks article, you can see that Android is actually being booted from the memory stick. It isn’t exactly optimized for the screen and doesn’t load with lightning speed and precision, but its a start.

    What about the HTC Touch Pro/AT&T Fuze, and the Tilt? Those are the two phones I”d like to see it on.

    Oh, and, I’d like to see Android on the Fujitsu Lifebook U820.

    Android is currently being worked on by some of the brightest developers in the community for the Touch Pro and Diamond over at the XDA forums.

    Version 1.0 is currently booting on these devices, but definitely has some work to be done before everyone can make the switch.

    Here’s a link to the wiki page. If you’re a serious developer and want to help out the community, see this page for more info.

    and the thread that is also updated frequently with the “behind the scenes” discussions:

    Again, this isn’t quite what we would call “working” at this point totally yet, but there have been some developments since the 31st of December. I’d urge anyone that can help to start following and contributing.
