Planetbeing: Android OS Now Running on the iPhone 3G
David Wong, the "hobbyist hacker" much more widely recognized as "planetbeing," has posted a blog proclaiming Andoid's arrival on the iPhone 3G. Despite the admission that the port is "slightly more rough" than its predecessor (Android on first-generation iPhone port), Wong says this accomplishment is significant for no shortage of reasons, not the least of which is that it represents an "important milestone for the more DIY-minded owners of the millions of iPhone 3G devices that are out there."
You can almost read the excitement in Wong's voice as he penned word that he has successfully made Google's Android OS run on the iPhone 3G, a feat that, without question, will engender more than a few ridiculously cool possibilities for the iPhone 3G - like using the Android OS to surf the web or exploring an entirely new world of apps. And while Wong praises the notion of "do-it-yourself," don't worry. You won't necessarily have to go it alone to make Android run on your iPhone 3G.
you'll have your chance in a couple of days when the packaged binaries and instructions for the 3G are posted.
Indeed, the iPhone 3G is now running Android. To see Wong's video of the epic achievement, check out his blog.

Actually i've been running mac on my pc perfectly for more than a year now even with updates and all. So even if its beta Android on iphone for now, it will be fully fonctional at one point. So before you knock down a project, get informed about how things work or better yet if your not intrested about this why comment.
