Nokia N9 might support Android apps
Nokia’s next gen MeeGo phone is called N9. Yes, the N9 will not be powered by the same old Symbian, but MeeGo – which is a joint effort by Nokia and Intel. This OS, like Android, is based on top of Linux. This means there is the basic connection.
Now here comes a framework called the Myriad Alien Dalvik system. This system allows non-Android operating systems to run Android applications and that too without any kind of software modification. Basically Alien Dalvik allows developers and app stores to repackage .APK installation files from the Android OS and have them run on other OS’. While the hardware capabilities can be accessed by the original Android app, further tweaking can be done through an Android SDK plugin offered by Myriad enabling Android apps to play real nice with MeeGo.
Now it is up to the independent developers to decide how far they want to support MeeGo, and your Nokia loyalty.
