 Hi,

Android is a Mobile operating System and Symbian is also Mobile
Operating System.

I don't think you will be able to install Android in Symbian. Android
is completely linux based.

I hope this helps you out.

Sunil

 I read somewhere that u can install Android OS on Symbian OS enabled phone.
We can choose the OS on switching on of the phone. But I was not able to
find way to implement it. Does anyone knows how to achieve it?

 I just expected support from community members and not blunt replies from
few members, after all community is meant for help and support only.

 Chirayu, these were actually quite good answers. As javame_android
mentioned, Android is Linux-based so theoretically you can port it to any
device that supports installing 3rd party OS on it as long as kernel is
ported to its CPU architecture and you've got necessary drivers. It would be
best to do some research and/or, as Disconnect suggested, ask people
familiar with a particular device whether it's possible or not. Porting any
OS to a new hardware platform is not a trivial thing though.

HTH,
Max

Welcome to the internet ;) You may need to grow a thick skin and keep your
head cool if you want to talk on tech forums :)

 I've been told that my applications will be useless until they allow
the user to make toast.

In theory Symbian is being open sourced, and in theory Android is
already open source, so as time goes by it should be easier to get
them to inter operate.

Also, Nokia does have a linux platfom, Maemo, so you might have more
luck there.

My 2 cents,
-MK

 Well, you may have found it annoying -- and I'll even allow that
perhaps he intended it to be annoying.

But it was also the best possible advice. You read information
somewhere that is very specific.

You are asking the question here -- a group dedicated to an entirely
different topic.

Asking here is a shot in the dark. You missed. Nobody here knows
anything about Symbian. This isn't a group about porting Android,
either.

So you're better off going back where you started from, and tracing
down the information from there.

The SECOND best advice I think we can offer would be to google for the
answer.

I think number three would be to ask on groups dedicated to porting
Android to new platforms. Perhaps that's what you thought this group
is, but it's not.

Good luck.

 My first answer was in fact not intended to be annoying. There is no other
place in the world he is likelier to find an answer than the original
source.

My second post, well...... :)

 Symbian is fully open source since some time in February 2010 ( they claim
to be even more open source than Android ;) ) so from that point of view it
is fully hackable.

As for Nokia's N900 it was already demoed with a dual-boot Android on it,
see  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yri4qOfP8T0

 Intersting conversation :)

Chirayu are you a end user or a developer ?

If you are a end user the answer is "NO".

If you are developer theoratically you can do it ...if you have tried your
hands on linux porting.Do you ahve the board schematic diagram ?

1. NetMeter update request

Hi,

Is there a developer here who would like to update the NetMeter app?
It is built by Bernhard Suter, but he has no time to update it and as
it's open source, somebody else could have a go at it. Regrettably I'm
not into Android development (yet) so taking this challenge up myself
is yet out of my league.

The source files are located in 
http://code.google.com/p/android-labs/source/browse/#svn%2Ftrunk%2FNetMeter
and what needs to be done is probably reasonably simple: NetMeter
displays the recent CPU activity and Wifi and Mobile traffic. CPU is
displayed fine, but in the recent Android versions, the Wifi and
Mobile traffic don't show. That's a pity, because I think this would
be an interesting app and at least I would like to use it to monitor
my network/mobile traffic.

Hope I invited you to a rewarding endeavor with everlasting fame...

Succes, BartH

2. AEC supported on Android? (Acoustic Echo Cancellation)

Hi,

    I am looking into audio features on Android, and curious about
whether AEC is supported on Android, and how it is achieved if it's
true. By hardware or software? which module it belongs to? supported
only for phone calls or can also be leveraged by other applicaiton
like a VoIP call app? and how to make it possible?

    It may not limit to SDK APIs, but refer to the platform
capabilities. Anybody could give me some information or hints on this?
appreciate very much!
