Android 2.2 installed on Nokia N900 to prove a point

Android 2.2 installed on Nokia N900 to prove a point
Although it's meant to run on the Linux-based Maemo OS, we've seen the Nokia N900 get some face time with Android in the past. In fact, the handset has been a playground for coders and developers ever since it came out, constantly evolving the platform, and adding functionality not there before.

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?
