‘This Week in Android’ have performed a video conference interview with planetbeing, aka David Wang. David produced the Android port to the iPhone 3G. The video itself is about 1 hour long but the interview stretches for only nine minutes, starting at around 23:00. They cover some interesting stuff, and here are the highlights.
The decision to port Android to the iPhone actually started around the choice to port Linux. Back when the project started, the Android source code was not even officially available for release. You might be wondering where David acquired all the relevant skills to do this job? Well, he is part of the [...]
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 [...]
Not that long ago we showed you the video by planetbeing of the iPhone 2G running Android. Well, now the inevitable has happened and the magic behind the 2G port has gone ahead and cast its spells over the iPhone 3G. This version of the iPhone can now also run Android.
My initial thoughts on the iPhone 2G port was that ‘who would really want to use it?’. You can pick up a device running Android natively, with a better hardware specification, cheaper than buying an iPhone 2G. However, it does make sense for those that have a spare iPhone 2G because they upgraded to the 3G version when it was released. Now, with the port to the iPhone 3G, some of these concerns are [...]
More pictures of the Ophone have surfaced over at the iloveophone by Sina Blog. This time, however, we can finally see what the Ophone looks like relative to its inspiration; the iPhone and iPhone 3G.
In short, it is slightly bigger (1mm), but not enough to notice even when holding them in your own hands. The Ophone is reputed to come with a better spec sheet, including what the iPhone misses out on most: a 5 megapixel camera. With that said, we have not been able to confirm the specifications of the Ophone from Lenovo, so until we hear more from the horse’s mouth, we should remain cautious.
