Install, Run Android Apps on non-android phones: Blackberry, Symbian..


Ever dreamt that you could run Android apps on different non-android platforms, and enjoy the same experience everywhere?
Android can already be installed on iPhone, but Myriad group is working on a new Virtual machine that would enable almost any platform to install Android Apps. The the new VM would be called the Alien Dalvik, bearing its name from Dalvik, android’s native VM.
Alien Dalvik will let the “majority” of Android apps run without modification and will appear as native apps. Myriad will be demonstrating this at Mobile World Congress on a Nokia N900 with commercial availability on the MeeGo platform and other non-android platforms, soon after.
Alien Dalvik enables the majority of Android applications to run unmodified, allowing application store owners to quickly kick start Android application store services by simply repackaging Android Package (APK) files.

From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik is completely transparent. Alien Dalvik applications appear as native and can be seamlessly installed on device without user disruption. All the user sees is that he now has access to a wider range of applications, thus encouraging a higher frequency of downloads and increased ARPU.
Myriad Group Chief Executive Officer, Simon Wilkinson, stated..
“The proliferation of Android has been staggering, but there is still room for growth. By extending Android to other platforms, we are opening up the market even further, creating new audiences and revenue opportunities.”
As a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), Myriad has been playing a key role in Android solutions since its early days. When partnering with Myriad for Android application development or porting, operators, OEMs and application store owners will benefit from Myriad’s rich heritage in Java technology and unique Android expertise.
Update: Handson video:
It would be interesting to see how they come up with a VM port for every platform and ultimately creating a huge revenue stream for Android developers.

    Symbian can run Android itself, see NITDROID.I'll be a happy man if this also gets ported efficiently to S^3. This is just what N8 needs.

  4. at last but not the least Nokia has shown some changes...;) :::)
