i dont think anyone will port this... android is a joke comparing to maemo
Hey dude you say N8 cant handle its own OS? really are you sure or you're just one of the trolls in the Nokia S^3 smartphones' forum!?
N8 runs smoothly with the 680 mhz because it also has a powerful Broadcom GPU. Many of you are complaining of the 256 MB RAM! Well as you know Nokia N900 is the multitasking beast of all smartphones. N900 has 256 mb RAM also! Nokia put what you called virtual memory. (700 mb virtual memory.) It will be used when it is really needed. so it is like you have 1GB of RAm! That's the fact behind it.
Not a big fan of Nokia but the N900 is some serious stuff. Shows that Symbian is severely hampering the company
Anonymous, 24 Dec 2010why doesnt anyone work on N8 having gingerbread? =(The N8 cant even handle its own os, If you feed it gingerbread it will blow up lol
I want to see a full working MeeGO come out for the N900 not the 1.1 SDK I installed the 1.1 and unfortunately I am not a dev nor do I know how to code in Linux so I cant do anything on it but stare at it then switch back to MaeMo please dev's get the ball rolling on a full MeeGo for this phone, this is a cool proof of concept put I want some MeeGo goodness besides I have my SE X10 running 2.2.1 froyo alpha for my Android fix.
N900 can be overclocked to 900 mhz, 1.2 ghz and even 1.5 ghz! find the entry in the gsmarena blog.
Hahahahaha, I love it!!!, I'd pay to see the faces of Samsung galaxy S owners XD
its all about optimisation and feature sets, buts its nice see nokia getting some nice software at last
I don't seem to have much luck with nokias. My n900 is at nokia high level repair centre lol. Meanwhile i bought myself a Samung Galaxy S - so far so good. Am i right in assuming that installing android software in the n900 could result in it being sent back to the high level repair centre again? How come nokia don't have their own people working on this stuff??
There is a mistake in the text: I'm orthodox and I celebrate Christmas like every one on 25th of December. Only some of the Eastern Orthodox Churches are celebrating Christmas in January.

whoa! android OS for Nokia?
but N900 has 600mhz cpu only, right?
so i guess, it might... moreYou can't just compare 600mhz...800mhz...and 1ghz...
It's like saying Desire 1ghz is faster than Desire Z's 800mhz, wrong, Desire Z is faster.
Different processors perform different speeds.
I can't believe how happy i feel reading this post, this goes to show how Nokia took real steps toward unlocking technology where everyone else started to lock it again...
