The long-awaited Nokia N9 was largely well received when it was announced in Singapore yesterday, but you’d be forgiven for having reservations about investing in a one-off MeeGo-running device.
If you’re worried about getting your Angry Birds fix, for example, fear not, as Myriad’s Alien Dalvik will allow Android apps to run on the N9.
A YouTube video shows Alien Dalvik running on a Nokia N900, and promises the ability to run any and all Android apps, including Twitter, Google Maps and, er, Chess.
Incidentally, the video is worth checking out for the voiceover alone. Something tells me the young lady really couldn’t care less about smartphones and MeeGo and Android apps. I’m sure she’s lovely though.
Android apps are launched in exactly the same way as native apps, providing a seamless and transparent experience. The apps run just as fast through Alien Dalvik thanks to Myriad’s turbo technology. Sweet.
Alien Dalvik is expected to become commercially available for MeeGo later in the year.
