Google's Android hacked onto real hardware

By   |  January 10, 2008

Last year Google announced Android, its Java-based software stack for mobile devices. Initially the company released Android with an emulator for testing. Hackers, however, have quickly hacked the software to run on real-world devices. LinuxDevices list the first hardware platform to run Android as the Atmark-Techno’s Armadillo-500 development board back in November last year.

Following that a series of devices were shown to be able to run Android, including the Android on the Sharp SL-C760, the Sharp Zaurus C3000M and the SL-C3x00.

LinuxDevices has a detailed look at the ongoing hacking of Android.

    Sounds awesome. The question I’m dying to know, is if android will support playback of mkv files. I have yet to see any company make a device that supports them.
