Video: Android 2.3 Gingerbread demo on the Nokia N900

On Christmas eve-eve we saw that Android 2.3 had been successfully ported to the N900 via the NITDroid project.

Below we can see N900 with Smooth Gingerbread action. Cheers Keith for the heads up!

Demoed features include:

  • Homescreen
  • Web Browser
  • Akwardly small portrait keyboard (is that the landscape keyboard just in wrong orientation?)
  • Dialler

    I wonder how long it’ll take for Android to be ported to the N8.

      Possibly – never.

        I hope it does happen. If the N8 had a proper android screen 800*480, 1Ghz and android it would be the best phone on sale.

        It can’t be ported because android 2.3 still dosn’t make use of a gfx unit yet right?

          I don’t need Android either except for the browser. I really wonder why Nokia don’t team up with Opera. Perhaps focusing on MeeGo, they simply run Firefox on future devices. But when it comes to browsing, there’s nothing that beats Chrome (though Opera gets pretty close).

    I wonder if n900 will be able to show 16 million colours with gingerbread. Or is it the hardware?

    I for one I don’t like android cos I have used it several times but for business and monetry reasons Nokia should do some android phones penetrate the us market and it wld get them the chance to push Symbian and meego tru the us market
