Windows Mobile and Google Android on one phone

Hi All,

 So I've been playing with this AT&T HTC 8925 phone, it's really cool.

Google Android is actually installed on the Micro SD Card :-)

Windows Mobile starts up then fires of an exe program which takes over and boot the Linux.

What's cool about it is if I take out the Micro SD Card it just comes up as normal Windows Mobile, why you say ...

The Google Andoid version on the Micro SD Card does not support bluetooth, which makes in impossible to use the bluetooth telephone interface in my Mercedes.

So I'm just going to have to reboot my phone if I'm going to be in my car.

Anyway it's a pretty old builg of Google Andoid, even if it is 2.0.1.

I'll hunt around see if I can find a newer version with camera and bluetooth.

HTC 8925 with Android 2.0.1

Hi All,

 So I just got my hands on an AT&T HTC Tilt2 8925 with Windows Mobile removed and Google Android 2.0.1.

I'm having to restart the device a lot :-)

  But what I'm able to use looks functional, I did a csv export out of my mail contacts and uploaded to my gmail account, the contacts just showed up like magic in the phone.

 Bluetooth is not working, I'll have to try and work out why.

 Having the Linux boot sequence coming up on the phone is freaky.
