Video: Confirmation of OpenMoko running Google Android platform
There have been a few whispers from an anonymous tipster leaking word that Android is running on an OpenMoko mobile phone, and we have a video of it. OpenMoko is one of the first Open Source mobile phones on the market.
Although the handset is kind of an ugly piece and didn’t seem to take off, it has been on back order for quite some time, furthermore, it’s not just that OpenMoko is running the Google Android platform, but the word is Koolu is going to be helping by utilising their own project which is to incorporate the handset as well.
There is also another rumour running run that there will be a free beta port for all existing FreeRunner mobile phone owners. So it does seem that the Android platform has now caught the interest of both large and small mobile phone companies.
