Nokia N95 running Android!

Wait, what? Google’s Android mobile OS is running on a handset designed with Symbian as the underlying mobile platform?

Yep, at least that’s what it looks like from what we can see in this here video. Apparently, some enterprising Android fan has managed to get what seems to be Android up and running on their Nokia N95. The videos aren’t exactly of the best quality (read: crap), but we can clearly see the Android-based Google Maps application grabbing positional data and the Android dialer making a voice call.

The first video shows the dual-boot setup this guy has setup, allowing him to boot up in to Android or Symbian. The second video shows the Nokia N95 running Google Maps and making a phone call on Android.

Now, given the lack of information we have on this video, it’s hard to say whether this video is showing a real-deal Android installation on Nokia N95 hardware, or if it’s just some clever UI demo cobbled together by someone with too much time on their hands.

In either case, we’ve got to hand it to “0Munch0” for putting together an impressive Android demonstration.
