Last OS i had that required that was Symbian.
My GS2 has NEVER gone unstable, and i often dont reboot it for weeks and months unless im updating SW.

Have yo used ICS??? Im using ICS on my GS2 (the very device im typing this on) and its VERY stable.
LOL! WP7? Oh please, its still ridiculously limited, the Lumia 800 itself is a downgrade from N9.

LOL! At the Android haters in here.
This is a great thing for the N9, seeing how Nokia abandond it, Android4.0 ICS is at the moment the best mobile OS around: sleek UI, highly functional and very versatile all at once, great to see it on the N9. :)

guys maybe android is not the proper os for n9 but we can consider this as an advantage for n9. think about it, two os's running in one phone and the good part is you can choose what to use.
the app lovers can also have lots of games and stuff with this port. you can have a piece of art with two os's and lots of apps.

'Putting android on N9 is like replacing a Porsche 911's engine with a toyota made, which will make it more versatile but u wont get the Porsche feel which u paid for!'

Yes, but at least they still make parts for the toyota. :D

Come one people, why should you put ICS on the Nokia N9? Meego Harmattan is made for Nokia N9 and is a extraordinary OS. I don't like it too watch ICS on the N9. Respect for the people who made it possible to run ICS on the N9, but no: the only good OS for N9 is Meego. The last update PR1.2 made it even a better device.

Why ruin an N9 with Android? That's a downgrade no Nokia deserves. That poor N9 is like a lab rat who was given cancer on purpose. :)

Putting UGLY android on N9 will not only make it just another ugly droid but also will replace its superawesone Swipe UI with Androids ugly UI!

Although i have to agree that MeeGo is a better OS than Android..
