Android 1.6 retrofitted onto Samsung Q1 UMPC (video)

Darren Murph

Too busy to bother with buying an Android-powered Archos 5? Then you're probably way too busy to bother with this here hack. But just in case you've got a morning you can wipe clean and a few afternoons where you can scoot out early, it's apparently possible to load up an Android 1.6 port onto one's Samsung Q1 UMPC. Kevin at jkOnTheRun did just that over a relaxing weekend, and while he's still struggling to get the touchscreen to act right, most everything else seems to be humming along sans issue. Eager to see if it's something you'd be into? Hop on past the break and mash play -- it's twelve minutes in heaven, ladies.
