    Just curious if anybody knows anything new about doing this. I remember reading not that long ago that it is possible except the hackers hadn't figured out the battery life yet. What thye had is Android working fully except for the battery use, it drained a full charge in two hours from memory. Because if they have fixed the battery issue i want to do this.

    The best you can do right now is just jailbreak your phone. Android on the iPhone has almost zero support for apps. You will have problems with speed and compatibility. Stick with the iOS and jailbreak it. It is good enough!

    got a damn fine upgrade deal from my carrier (Optus) $0 and a decent cap plan. That and there is only two vaguely high end Android phones available in Australia, The Samsung Galaxy S and the HTC Desire. The Desire is locked to Hellstra and the Galxay S just doesn't seem attractive to me. Though the thought of an outright Android phone purchase is appealing until something like the HTC EVO comes to Oz its not worth it in my mind.
