android on iphone

Filed under: Uncategorized — mokjay @ 8:41 am

Android, one of the best phone operating systems on the market has just been ported to the iphone. This is a big deal, similar to running OS X to a PC.

As I have said before, Android is completely open source, so people can do what they wish with it, while iPhone OS is limited heavily by apple.

As it is still very buggy, it should be not be used as an everday OS for the iphone just yet. I took the risk of installing android on my iphone and i was rather pleased with the results. It took all of 6 hours and a waste of my sunday to do, but now I can boot both Android and iPhone OS on my phone.

Some of the problems include

– no edge
– no android market
– no way to shut off the screen
– the iphone only has one button while android handests usually have 4

The phone runs extremely hot and the battery drains really fast.
Right now, it is just a gimmick, but one day, it will become a viable option for people who do not want the hardware of an Android phone but the great operating system.
