Hi,

Android phones are currently still expensive.

However, I do have a Dopod 838p, running Windows Mobile 6.0. Wondering if I can do a clean format and just install Android onto this device as OS.

Is this possible?


Best regards
eric

I would say the chances of successfully doing that are extremely difficult to impossible.
Have a look at Aftermarket installations and Android on Nokia N810 for some attempts made so far.
