Android apps for N9 with Alien Dalvik

Android apps for N9 with Alien DalvikThe 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.

It certainly looks like a very nice phone. Any solid news on flash support yet?

Seeing how all Nokia smartphones have some degree of flash support, I cannot see this one coming without it. The N900 has the most desktop-esque browser of them all, so I'm hopeful.
But I daresay - this will not be a cheap phone by any definition.

By the by, Angry Birds runs on the N900, and it'll be a doddle to port it to MeeGo. Dalvik or no Dalvik. And we don't know when tne Android vm will ACTUALLY be viable. HP's touchpad was s'posed to have it. The Pre 3 was s'posed to have it...

This is another reason im really getting sold on Meego and the N9, exciting (if uncertain) times ahead, I just wish the N9 was out NOW!
