Get Android on Your HTC Windows Mobile Phone (Sorta)

In this video we show Android 2.0.1 (Eclair) running on an HTC Touch Diamond2. While the Android installation is running from a Linux bootloader and isn’t stable enough for day-to-day use (not to mention the lack of support for cellular data or WiFi), it’s super easy to get going and allows you to experience a lot of Android from your Windows Mobile device. If you’re running a Touch Pro2 or Touch HD, we’ve got some love for you too. We hope that one day we’ll be able to do a real port of Android on Windows Mobile hardware, but for now, there’s the emulator. See the download links below that come from XDA.
