AxDroid - Android on Dell Axim x51v from Ertan D. on Vimeo.

Just because you CAN run Android on a Dell Axim x51v, should you? Although it doesn't seem to make much sense to run Android on an antiquity like this Dell Axim PDA, I can't help but admire Ertan D. for his creativity and know-how.

There are a few hiccups with this marriage of cutting-edge Android OS and elderly PDA hardware. Wi-Fi and Power Management are not fully cooperating. However, the touchscreen and D-Pad are performing normally. If anything, the fact that Ertan D. could successfully retrofit Android to an old device like the Axim x51v further illustrates the promise of the Android OS on a potentially limitless list of devices. Android on a Palm Vx, anyone?
