Hack Shows How to Get Android 2.1 On Some Windows Mobile Phones

,----[ Quote ]
| As a long-time Windows Mobile user who 
| finally gave up on it and switched to an 
| Android phone, Iâve been thrilled with the 
| new operating system. Now, it looks like 
| others who are fed up with WinMo might be 
| able to switch a little more easily.
| Over at XDA-developers, a forum where 
| developers post hacks, tips, and software, 
| a developer has released a beta ROM of 
| Android 2.1 for four Windows Mobile phones, 
| all by HTC: the Tilt for AT&T (AKA the HTC 
| Kaiser), Vogue, Niki, and Polaris. That 
| means that four phones that arenât built 
| with Android at all have Android 2.1 before 
| some native Android phones, like the Hero 
| and the Droid Eris.
