There are matches made in heaven, and on the other side of the spectrum, there is David Wang's accomplishment: booting Google's Android operating system on Apple's iPhone
Wang, the "planetbeing" member of the a group called the iPhone Dev Team devoted to hacking iPhones, posted a video demonstrating Android on an iPhone Wednesday.
The demo shows the boot process--complete with the Tux Linux mascot--and Wang using Android for browsing, receiving a text message, answering a phone call, and playing music. The phone is set up with a dual-boot configuration and indeed the video begins with it running iPhone OS.
In fact, the phone doesn't just run Android--it also had dual-boot capabilities, by way of Linux 2.6 bootloader OpeniBoot, which is also a Planetbeing creation.
