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.
