    Im definitely keeping an eye on this thread. My tilt 2 phone is set up for dual boot. Android froyo 2.2 or window mobile 6.5.1. I been running froyo on a non android native phone. Runs great. So im always into this type of stuff. Hopefully it will be simple like mines. It was just a cab install to the sd card and im running android..lmfao. All thnx to xda-forums of course, which im also a member of. ;-)

    I think that would be the coolest thing imaginable when it happens.

    I do think it's going to happen, just quite possibly not for quite some time!

    If you want the Android OS on a pad, why not just get an Android tablet? i don't get it. Or is it just one of those because I can things?

    Definitely just a because I can thing... iOS will NEVER be able to run on an Android device (there are some pretty close skins though) but an iPhone 2G can run Android... Which in my opinion makes Apple devices far superior...

    I cant help but to hack. Everyone knows Android OS is the better Os for development. Plus I didn't buy this thing. I'd rather a 9 in Android Tablet.

    Wait a sec... so because the Apple product will run the Android OS and not the other way around, that means the Apple product is better? First of all, why would anyone WANT to run the Apple OS on an Android? Developers who are into this kind of thing would have no use for something like that. That isn't a shot at Apple or anything, I'm just saying there would be no value in running the Apple OS on anything but an Apple product. Even then, the best thing you can do is get the Android OS on it if you want to develop.

    I'm definitely looking forward to the new Android tablets that are coming out. As soon as I can get one running 2.2 with at least the 1ghz processor, this iPad is going on eBay. I'll probably wait for another year so some Android tablet apps can be developed, but that won't take long for the ones I use on a regular basis.

    dont know where your getting that android is better for development.... Did you just make that up?

    as a developer I can say that developing apps for iOS is better then for android.

    Dual boot would be nice, how about running iOS on one of those new Android tablets? That should be interesting.

    No, it will make it full featured. It will allow the user to run flash if they feel like it. It will slow the user to change the keyboard to a different one if they feel like it. It will not slow it down, it will just give the user choice that apple doesn't think they should have.

    But you will still be missing many of the features that make the Android tablets so much better, like memory expansion, more RAM, USB ports, HDMI ports, etc, etc, etc.

    If you want an Android tablet, sell the iPad and buy an Android tablet.

    Not a good point. We are in the hackingvsection. Don't ruin the discussion with "sell the iPad and buy an android"' comment.

    Not to mention that with Android I would be running a DLNA server, which renders the HDMI port meaningless, a SAMBA server, which renders the USB port meaningless and I would have the same amount of storage as my phone right now at 16gb so expandability would be less of an issue. The ram will hurt, pretty badly actually, jesus Apple you couldn't spare another $.25 worth of ram to up it to 512MB at least??


    Least of all, it will be very intersting just to see how the hardware in the iPad can run Android. Android is a more demanding OS than iOS, because it simply does a lot more. The Applications on iPad I would assume are more demanding than similar ones on Android however, and they seem to run plenty smoothly, so unless it is just some CRAZY optimization Apple did to make them so smooth, Android should run fairly decently.
