Run Google’s Android OS on your Windows Mobile deviceI had a chance to play with the generic Google Android device that has been floating around at Mobile World Congress a couple of months ago. Now, you too can play with the Android OS on your Windows Mobile device as you can see in the videos posted by Leigh Geary on Coolsmartphone.com.

The method comes from the helpful XDA Developers community and the Android OS is shown running on an HTC Touch Dual device. Leigh stated that it isn't a ROM hack or anything, but a Linux image running within Windows Mobile. Hmm, a dual boot device could be very enticing for the mobile gadget geek. I'll have to try this out soon myself to see how it works. Remember though that these are early bits of Android and your device may not be that stable running Android at this time.

    There are many developers out there working on this that we don't know about. The reason nothing is mentioned yet is that they don't want to post without result. Like HTC's TouchFlo 3D, this will be a cool app to run over Windows Mobile.

    You can get dual booting software and you can run either Windows or other based OS's , the other os being on your SD Card.
