Android on the iPhone? Mission possible

iPhone hacker allegedly installs Android OS on the iPhone

In a move that will have geeks feeling giddy with excitement, an iPhone hacker has allegedly managed to install the Android operating system on Apple's smartphone.

iPhone hacker Planetbeing has managed to dual boot the two operating systems, meaning the iPhone can run both the regular iPhone OS and the Android OS and you can switch between them — they can't be run simultaneously obviously.

At this stage, the project was completed on an original 2G iPhone, but we're sure it will be eventually configured to work for both the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
