Nokia N9 romancing with Android spotted, and a MeeGo root access video
Google's Eric Schmidt even said after the Nokia Windows Phone announcement that the Android door is still open should Nokia change its mind.
An image of Nokia N9 running some test Android build emerged that might be a remnant of those happy green robot times when Nokia has been toying around with Android.
Stephen Elop's "confidential" leak yesterday, so it might have some street cred.
In the meantime a video emerged of a Nokia N9 with root access, which paves the way for developers and the modding community to play around with custom ROM installations.
Who knows, given the 1GHz Texas Instruments ARM-based chipset, the phone is certainly ripe for all sorts of Android shenanigans, even without Myriad's Alien Dalvik software. Here's to hoping we can see some fusion of both MeeGo and Android worlds on the Nokia N9 at a future point.
