Android on iPhone 3G

The Android port to the iPhone 3G is now ready for download and installation to your iPhone. The master-mind behind the port had released videos of the port a week or so ago, but now he has released the necessary binaries. Even better, you can hit up PC World’s website for a nice how-to guide that covers the whole procedure.

Although this port does everything that you expect your smartphone to be able to do, it isn’t usable for day-to-day activities just yet–I haven’t implemented any power-management functions, so a fully charged iPhone running Android will last only an hour or so.

That’s a pretty big deal breaker even for me, but getting things set-up now for some dual booting action will certainly make things easier in the future. For the full read-me click here, and for the original article by David Wang at PC World, click here!

    Putting android on an Iphone is like putting a 250cc engine in a ferrari. Android OS is laggy and the apps suck compaired to Iphone.

    Apparently Joel has not used a recent Android phone. Get a HTC Desire.

    Calling an iPhone a Ferrari is like calling a Corvette a Ferrari. Yeah, you’ve got a pretty cool car, but when you act like it’s a Ferrari you just look like a d-bag. Every one knows you’ve got a corvette, so quit fronting.

    Joel, I’ll put my Nexus One with froyo up against your POS iPhone 3GS anywhere, anytime, chump. We’ll see which one is laggy.
