Munch from Belgrade seems to have shoehorned Google’s Android OS onto a dual-boot Nokia N95. The demo videos are rather grainy, but you can make out Android booting up and Google Maps running fullscreen. Munch vows to release the code for installation October 5th on his blog.

If you manage to get this running on your N95 when it’s released, leave a note in the comments.

Update: turns out to be a complete fake.

    Err, these videos are more than one year old, and most probably a fake, as the guy never released anything else since then.

    Just look at his blog (which you put a link to) …

      Should have known it to be too good to be true. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Did you even read the blog post or the YT video you linked to?

    The author *admits* in the YT comments that the video was faked, and the blog was last updated on Oct 10th **2008** where he ‘published’ the ‘code’ but protected it with a randomly-generated password and challenged people to crack it. Not a word since.

    Great journalism, guys…

      Sorry about that. You are correct in assuming that I didn’t read the YT comments. It would have been totally obvious if I had. I’ve updated the post calling it a fake.
