[Video] Nokia N9 tastes Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3
Nokia N9 which originally comes with the MeeGo OS (ver. 1.2) Harmattan has been modded to run the open source Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0.3 by some of the developers at NITDroid.
Making a Nokia device run an Android OS is commendable. Yes, the Android community has developers who make custom ROMs and release it every now and then but these people at NITDroid have done a commendable job.
There is certainly a list of apps or functions which won’t on this Nokia N9 ran by custom ICS 4.0.3,but that is understandable. The developers have named it ‘Project Mayhem’.
Watch the video released by NITDroid which demonstrates what I’ve written above.

Well since I don’t own a Nokia N9 I’m not in a position to try NITDroid’s custom ICS 4.0.3 on it. So just go through their official installation guide and check it out. Remember this custom ICS OS is released as Alpha, so test it at your own risk.
With this, the developers at Nokia might change their mind which is currently set only on Windows Phone OS. Nokia’s hardware is more than decent so a good operating software would augment their sales.
What do you think about this custom ICS version running on Nokia N9 ?
