Android running on older HTC device


A prototype device running Android, Google’s upcoming open-source mobile operating system, has been developed by the California-based company a la Mobile. Unlike the prototype from Willcom, this one is running on an HTC Qtek 9090. Among the applications installed where a browser, a phone dialer, an audio player, Google maps, camera software, games, a calendar, a contact manager, a calculator and a notes application.

Meanwhile, Andy Rubin, Google’s senior director of mobile platforms, revealed that Google will only release the Google source code once a couple of Android phones have been released commercially. The intent is to ensure that Android is well tested and reliable before the source code is given to third party developers.
