Also, you have to deal with the carrier controls.. you buy an Android phone from ATT, you get ATT's "bloatware" and must "root" your phone to remove it... With rooting, you get issues with certain parts of the OS not working (GPS, Button functionality). Therefore, you have fragmentation of the Android OS; as one flavor of Gingerbread is not necessarily working correctly on your HTC but works fine on a Motorola.
Be careful about thinking that Android is so much more open than iOS. B/C the OS is, the H/W manufacturers and Carriers are not.

This is really neat.... but I installed Froyo on my brother in law's iPhone 3G and it ran really slowly. Not to mention the touch screen was pretty unresponsive and the drivers were just not very compatible. Multiple functions were also not supported.
If a REAL working Android install was released for 3GS and i4 then that would be really really cool. Otherwise... its just something cool to show off to your friends.

Hey Josh, where'd your other article go!?

It's just another way to show that iOS is better than Android because of the ability to do this.
Yes you can dual boot both iOS and Android on your iphone.

Can't wait! Been wanting this on my 3GS since the release for the 3G

While I'm sure this is great news for many, I personally don't see a point in it. I use my JB'd iPhone 4 and a Thunderbolt 4G with android all day long while developing and testing my phone apps. I understand the open source factor, but to me this is like putting a Honda Motor in a Porsche. Sort of like the Windows Phone skin for iPhone. It's not nearly as nice of an interface, so why downgrade?
