Alright, you can definitely file this under “awesome.” A Palm Pre developer that goes by the name of k3dar over PreCentral Forums has managed to get Android dual-booting on his Palm Pre. The port is nowhere near ready for prime-time (and most likely wont ever be) but I was honestly impressed at how well he got AOSP Android 2.3 Gingerbread running on an old 600Mhz OMAP 3430 processor.

K3dar was also gracious enough to provide us with a video of his feat for your viewing pleasure. Protip: You might want to mute/turn down your speakers before watching.

While I appreciate a good Android port as much as the next guy, I’m still waiting to see someone port Web OS or even Windows Phone 7 over to non ancient hardware like an Evo or G2X. What about you guys? What mobile OS would you not mind dual-booting into from time to time? (Responding with iOS will get you immediately banned from the internet. For life.)
