Hacker Gets Android Running on iPhone [news.cnet.com]
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.

Ah, so he upgraded it. ;)

Just kidding. No need to start a debate.

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.

This has got to have the Android team rolling on the floor in hysterics and Steve Jobs hissing and spitting.

I like it :)

Dual boot, eh? That may be a weekend project this summer. ;)

Dual boot?

Maybe this could save me money on hardware for testing.
