Android 2.2 installed on Nokia N900 to prove a point
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 30, 2010, 8:57 AM
It was just a matter of time before someone shouted “first!” that they have managed to install Android 2.2 on the handset. A video on AndroidCentral forums has popped up to prove it, and the execution seems to work well. Now, the effort is still work in progress, since the phone lacks some basic features such as cell phone signal and Wi-Fi, but it is still fun to watch Android doing its thing on the handset. The first Froyo build on the Nokia N900 also can't mount your SD card, but other than that the point is proved in the video below.
Now how upsetting is the fact that a Nokia handset is running Froyo, and your Android handset is still waiting in that line?

If only the phone had a capacitive screen. Oh, wait - I forgot - it's a nokia phone. Better now install 2.2 on the N8 then.

I realized that girls tend to like resistive screen better due to the fact that they respond to finger nails.... Every time my GF uses my HD2, she always tries to press the screen with her finger nails... so a lot of complains about phone not working at all come after...

Simmer down there little buddy...don't get your Nokia panties in a bunch. Not going to go as far to say that Nokia "sucks"...i'll just say Nokia leaves a lot to be desired. You would expect more out of a #1 worldwide mobile phone maker than what they have been bringin.
