iPhone 3G gets Android 2.3 Port Before Most Android Devices Do

Yup you read that right, Android 2.3 has been ported to the iPhone before it has arrived on most Android devices, the Nexus One in particular.  As with the previous ports of Android to the iPhone, it is done on a 3G model and is based on the dual-booting iDroid port so you can safely boot back into iOS should something go wonky for you in Android.  Check out the video below of the proof. Owning a Nexus One and feeling a little burned that the arch-nemesis has Android 2.3 before you have it (officially)? Sound off in the comments!

Android getting ported to the iPhone may be old news by now, but Android 2.3 (a.k.a. Gingerbread) getting ported to the iPhone? Well, that’s something… new, if entirely expected. As before, it’s the iPhone 3G doing the honors, and the port is still based on the iDroid project, which means you can hang onto iOS in a dual-boot configuration so you won’t be left in the cold when the less-than-stable port decides not to cooperate. And, yes, this once again means that the iPhone has gotten the latest version of Android before many Android devices have. Head on past the break for a video.
