Watch: Google Android running on the iPhone 3G

A tech editor has been documenting weeks of work to port the full Google Android operating system to the Apple iPhone 3G.

If you've ever wanted to see the (im)perfect marriage of Apple and Google, here it is.

PCWorld's David Wang has been documenting weeks of work to port the full Google Android operating system to the Apple iPhone 3G.

It's been a slow and steady process, but he's finally making headway.

Wang says that once he knocks out the audio hurdle, he'll post binaries and instructions for warranty-breaking, intrepid coding-types to hack their iPhone into Android-y oblivion.

The point? Phones are more like computers than ever before -- and that paves the way for the mobile industry to follow the path of the desktop one.

Palm's webOS on the Nexus One, anyone?
