    Default Android on Nokia S60V5 devices

    Hi!

    I was just wondering if it's at all possible to change from Symbian to either Android or Windows Mobile on Nokia 5800 XM!
    I tried searching the forum for any related material without luck, it's not that I'm ungrateful for my 5800, it's just that I can't help but wanting either android or WM on my phone :P (preferably android).

    Anyone who knows of poeple tried to convert their OS on Nokia 5800? (assuming this as android's open source).

    Thanks

    Yeah and it works without hassle... I have already seen it working on a Nokia N810, so figured it could be worked around somehow for the 5800

    @Mr. Bean
    Well Now a days MAC runs on PC too.

    @superfst
    Well its not possible to change OS in 5800, because all the OS have different architecture and runs on different hardware configuration.

    If you have linux based mobile phone like i have motorokr, then you could easily change the OS, but all based on linux kernel. LIke motorokr comes with default montavista linux, you can change it to install Openmoko(still on development), qtopia(still on development). And if you get source code, you can even make your own OS.

    It should be possible.... They uses the same architecture?? But dont know how and if someone have tried developing anything.
    On serveral windows mobile phones you can run android.
    Look at xda-developers.com for more info.

    But i would say. Buy an android if you want it.

    I have tried to put OS X on my PC. No problem after they have switched to X86.

    Would be great if Haret was converted to symbian. A tool the allows linux (And android) to boot on windows CE enviroment and
    take advantage of the hardware internals of the Windows CE handheld.
