HTC Touch Gets the Android Port (VIDEO)
In its relatively young age, Android has already seen its share of porting to devices that weren’t originally designed to run it.Â That’s what’s so great about the operating system.Â It’s powerful yet at the same time, it doesn’t require a lot of hardware.Â The latest device to get the Android treatment is the HTC Touch.
Some might argue that the Touch is a sexier phone than the G1.Â Others might disagree, pointing at hardware differences in the two.Â Whatever the case, both are now able to run Android.Â The Touch can be hacked to run the OS, as opposed to the Windows Mobile that came preloaded.
How about that virtual keyboard on there?Â We’d love to have something like that on our G1.
If you want the DIY stuff, head over to xda developers. When you’re all done with Android, feel free to reboot and reload the Windows Mobile OS.Â We doubt you would though, once you get a taste of the superior product.
