Soon you’ll be able to thanks to Myriad’s Alien Dalvik.
Ever since rumours of RIM enabling their devices to run Android apps the internet has been abuzz just trying to fathom all the possibilities that this might unlock. It seems that the folks over at Myriad felt this was their cue. They set into motion their epic plan; the Alien Dalvik.
To get Android Apps to run on a non-Android device, one would have to run it through the Dalvik Java virtual machine, the same one as android. The Alien Dalvik does exactly that. Acting as an emulator, it uses the Dalvik wrapper to run Android applications on non-native devices. The best part about this is that it does so at almost the same speeds as the apps would run natively.
The software was deployed on a Nokia N900 and is supposed to be available to all MeeGo devices later this year. That is, of course, if MeeGo survives that long.
