Nokia users get it to run Android

Written by Nick Farell

Tired of waiting
Nokia users who like the phone but hate the operating system have come up with a hack that allows it to run Android. NITDroid developers have created a compatible version of the Android operating system for Nokia’s internet tablets.

Terrence Eden, a UK-based mobile consultant who installed Android 1.6 “Donut” on his Nokia N810, told Wired that Nokia gear was fantastic but the software was pants. He said that Android is a much better software environment for Nokia hardware. It's worth noting, though, that it can't work on Google Market and apps.

Other developers have created a stable version of Android 2.2 Froyo for the Nokia N900, which ships with Nokia’s Maemo operating system. It gets calls, data and Google apps going on the hacked device. For some reason though camera support is lacking.

The NITdroid project has had varying degrees of success. So far, they have attempted to port Android for Nokia’s tablet range of devices — which means the Nokia N770, N800, N810 and N900.
