Ever since the launch of the Android SDK, there's been a number of videos released showing ports and hacks of the platform running on existing mobile devices.

So i thought it might be fun to round them all up into one place. So here's a rundown of the Android ports i could find.

If you know of any i've missed, feel free to add them

Armadillo 500

This YouTube video demonstrates a successful port of the Android SDK on some real hardware in the form of the Armadillo 500.


Brilliant Service, the Japanese company ported Android to the ARM based evaulation board - the Armadillo 500. The Armadillo’s CPU is i.MX31L (ARM11 core) which runs at 400MHz, and as you can see from the video the Armadillo Android port runs a lot faster than the Android Zaurus.


Sharp Zaurus SL-C3100

Android seems a good fit for the Zaurus SL-C3100 as these screenshots show.

The Android SDK emulator image (m5-rc14) was successfully ported over to the Sharp device, noting that the main difference between the Zaurus and the emulator being that Android uses a panning mechanism (page flipping) for screen updates, and this is currently unsupported in the default pxa2xx framebuffer code of the linux 2.6.23 kernel.

Sharp Zaurus C700

Here’s the Android m5-rc14 build successfully running on the Zaurus C700.

Nokia N810

Possibly one of the most impressive Android ports to date is the installation on the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. eLinux.org have posted a pretty detailed how-to to get Android up and running on your N810 if you fancy your chances.

Some video proof of a successful Android port to the Sharp Zaurus SL-C760.

I get a little confused sometimes by the many names/model numbers these HTC phones go by, but i dont think you included this one...

It's the BlueAngel from HTC.

I've got an HTC Vogue (cdma touch) working with calling, sms, data thanks to the guys over at xda-developers.

I'd take a picture but my only camera is my phone
