Apple iPhone runs Google Android

Here is something we don’t see everyday, an iPhone that has been hacked to run Google Android. The video (embedded below) shows Android running on the iPhone. Not everything is in place such as the Android functions on various menus. The iPhone has had a few keys remapped to allow easier navigation around the phone, such as the power button being the back button and the volume buttons also having their own functions other than volume.

It doesn’t run the greatest, but it is an early build which the developer says is closer to an Alpha release than a Beta release. It does show potential though and although scrolling isn’t the quickest in the browser, the screen transitions are actually quite impressive and appear to beat my own G1 in terms of load speed.
