Nokia N900 Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The modding community has done it again! The popular NIITDroid team has managed to port Android 2.3 Gingerbread on the Nokia N900. While the N900 runs on Maemo out-of-the-box, the phone has a huge modding potential. Due to this, various OS’s including Android 2.1, Android 2.2 and MeeGo OS have been ported to it. clip_image001

Most features of the phone including Wi-Fi, Sound and 3G are working on Android 2.3. However, the Android 2.3 ROM for the N900 still contains some major bugs which make it unstable for a day-to-day use.

As of now, the ROM is not yet out for public consumption. The developers of the ROM have promised to release an experimental Android 2.3 Gingerbread ROM for the N900 before the end of this year. They have also promised to release a fully stable Android 2.2.1 ROM for the N900 by Christmas.

    nothing has been ‘promised’ so far. the release dates have been thrown around as ideas. those release dates hasnt really been confirmed. it says so on the nitdroid developer’s twitter page (at the time of writing this comment). and i quote the text: “idea: release stable 2.2.1 before Cristmas. 2.3-experimental before NY… and i hope to have smth for Ortodox Cristmas too:) Any opinios?”
