Those hackers are tearing the iPhone to shreds these days.  First came jailbreaks, then came Linux on the iPhone.  Now, there’s speculation that Android might be a possibility.  This is starting to get exciting.  I love my iPhone and wouldn’t change anything about it, but the possibility of putting a whole new phone OS on my device, if I feel like it, is mighty enticing.  It’s a ways off, but would you try Android out on your iPhone?  There’s a lot of possibilities that this brings to the surface. First, the iPhone could become more mobile desktop than cellphone.  Second, it could make a lot of people aware of linux, and how great those operating systems have become over the last couple years. Third, given the state of the open source community, it would only be a matter of time before some sweet homebrew options pop-up (probably the most exciting part).  The next couple of months will be pretty exciting.

Below is the iPhone linux demonstration.
