A lot of people maintain that if Nokia was determined to look to an outside platform when ditching MeeGo and Symbian a year ago, it made the wrong choice in Windows Phone and should have opted for Android itself.
Well, Nokia N9 users can now get a glimpse of what might have been thanks to NITDroid, a port for the MeeGo OS that brings the wonders of Android Ice Cream Sandwich to the Nokia flagship.
The ICS port is the work of developer Alexey Roslyakov, who showed off a screenshot of his handiwork via Twitter, along with the one-word caption “progress”.
As that implies, the port is by no means final, but it certainly gives owners of the MeeGo-based N9 something to look forward to.
And if you like the sound of ICS running on the stunning N9 hardware but still want to keep hold of MeeGo (and we imagine a lot of people would), Roslyakov also revealed that he's working on a dual-boot setup so you can switch between Harmattan and Android to your heart's content.
For the time being, though, we'll just have to make do with the pic and the assurance that "progress" is being made towards the finished article. We'll keep you posted!
