Android on the N810

There’s a thread at Internet Tablet Talk with amazingly simple instructions. I was up and running in just a few minutes:

Android home screen

Wifi networking worked, as long as you were already associated with access point under Maemo before you run the launcher to start up Android:

Android browser

It is kinda sluggish on this hardware, there are some keyboard quirks, and I’ve had a few different apps (including the apps launcher app) crash away for seemingly no reason. But it’s a fantastic first effort, amazing they got it working at all. Kudos to the whole team!

    In another thread there are some instructions on stopping some services before running it, thus making it not very sluggish anymore.

    How long does your gps take to get a location? I’ve had my n810 for a week now and have not gotten a gps signal indoors or out for 9min.

    The gps on the n810 takes forever. If I need to use it and I haven’t in a while, I generally find a place with a good view of the sky, turn the device timeouts as high as I can, and just leave it sitting. Sometimes it takes a few times going back and waking it up before it’ll get a signal, even on a clear day with no obstructions. GPS is not a strong point for it.
