Nick Pack, an
iDroid developer, has just posted a video of an iPhone
3G running Android 2.3 Gingerbread (video embedded after the
break). It’s pretty sluggish, and the video quality is poor, but the
proof of concept is clear: it’s certainly Android 2.3 on an iPhone.
The same developer went
on to add that it’s still very early days for the port, and
that the “iPhone 4 port is under way and progressing steadily.” Of
course, once it runs on the iPhone 4, the Android 2.3 on the iPad is
just the tiniest of baby steps away.
While a public release of Android 2.3
for iPhone is probably a few weeks away, a stable build of Android
2.2 for iPhone is available from the iDroid site;
installation is pretty easy, and it runs quite well too.
so there you have it. A great way to get the best of both
worlds on an iPhone 3G. I have also left a video clip of this
above for you to have a look at. Though there may have been
performance issues with iOS 4 on the iPhone 3G, I am sure that when a
stable release of Android is ready, it should be usable. As
mentioned above, all of you iPhone 4 owners out there should also be
able to get in on the action soon as there will be a version of Android
for iPhone is in the works at the moment.
However, I should warn you that you will need to jailbreak
your iPhone if you want to try this out for yourselves.
