Android Gingerbread 2.3 Ported to Nokia N900

Android Gingerbread 2.3 Ported to Nokia N900

And the hackers have done it again. This time, Google's Gingerbread makes its way onto the Nokia N900, a device that was already running on the Linux-based Maemo OS. What makes this port even more impressive is the fact that the OS is running quite smoothly on the N900. Typically, you don't see that happening when another OS not built for the device is ported over.

Engadget - Running Android on the Nokia N900 has been an ongoing theme for the better part of the past year -- and with hardware designed from the ground up to be both hackable and high-end, we'd expect no less. Indeed, Android 2.3 is the latest victim of an N900 sneak attack, and impressively, core components like messaging already seem to be working -- likely thanks to the fact that hackers had already gotten pre-2.3 builds rock solid.

Now, wouldn't it be great if the Android OS was ported to the Nokia N8? Perhaps, that would have solved a whole lot of performance issues with Nokia's flagship model. Read more about the Android 2.3 port onto the Nokia N900 over here.
