Nokia’s N900 Gets A Real Shot At Android [Video]


So the iPhone is already getting its crack at Android, and the Nokia N900 wants to take its crown back. Back in January, we saw that Android could be dual-booted alongside Maemo, but the implementation wasn’t too promising at that point. The project – now known as NITDroid – has made some huge strides and will continue to grow as time moves on.

This time around, we’ve got a fully working (and very responsive) touch-screen, a usable QWERTY keyboard, a much-faster boot time, and a resolution that doesn’t make Android look like a disproportionate mess. It also recognizes the N900’s internal memory, and appears to be running Eclair, at that. “Go, NITDroid, Go!” is all I can say, at this point, as I’m always excited to see Android popping up on numerous devices for which it wasn’t intended (including several Windows Mobile-based devices, to date).

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
