never met a *nix system I didn't want to be friends with


AxDroid was a project started by Ertan Deniz and continued by Paul Burton. The AxDroid project aimed to get Google's Android operating system into a usable state (with as full hardware support as possible) on the Dell Axim X50(v) and X51(v) Pocket PCs. I was a contributing developer to the project. I wrote the initial PCMCIA driver and did other kernel related work. We had running builds of Android 1.5 and 2.1. The project was cancelled after it became apparent that Android would never work for daily use on the devices due to hardware limitations. Seriously, it was suuupper slow. Took about 15 mins to boot to the homescreen.
