Your eyes aren't deceiving you. No, that's not a new Android phone but rather the Windows Mobile HTC Imagio running our favorite OS. A PPCGeeks forum user got Android 2.0.1 (take that non-Droid phones!) running on the Windows Mobile device and it's really for kicks and giggles than for any real functionality. The forum user, drellisdee says:
I've gotten android 2.01 to boot on Imagio based on the topaz work on xda. After changing the the startup config's I've got the touchscreen responding properly but the hardware keys arent mapped right. The latest kernel noted in post 602 on xda didnt boot but the original pkg did. PS vol down is for vol and backup key as its mapped currently and the bottom right onscreen button on the press the android to start will let you change the lang to english.
The CDMA Radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and hardware buttons still need some work but hey, it's a start. Us Android users and Windows Mobile users can certainly live peacefully together.
But what we really want to see is that HD2 running Android..
