    Hey peeps! Recently I my interest in Android OS has started to grow and I was just doing some random searches when I came across this...

    Android on Wii?

    Now I have no idea how old this page is or if it's completely legit so please don't shoot the messenger> I just figured that this would be worthy of a chat between us board members. Frankly I hope these guys (if this is legit) do succeed. Maybe then the Wii can get some REAL justin.tv action but hey, that's just my personal thought. What do you ladies and gents think?

    Google must support Nintendo!

    I want to see more works with them on 3DS! 3DS must have Google applications! ( and with capability of the other social networking)

    Android os is just embedded Linux. It can be ported any platform using ARM architecture.
    Oh and Hell no to Google applications on Nintendo systems.
    First it's not going to happen Google rather compete with Nintendo.
    Second I hope it won't happen. Android, Google Apps or mobile apps in generals are hugely exaggerated.

    I'm with you on that. The DSi had so much potential and it was all wasted [​IMG] . I love my DSi dearly but it would have benefited from having some REAL apps available from the DSi shop.

    Wut? This isn't really news. The OP was a fake and didn't really know a single thing about programming.

    EDIT: Moved this to Wii - Hacking, as it was nothing more than a fake, and this will probably turn into a speculation thread [​IMG]

    I don't mean the Google systems on Nintendo.
    But, they should work with together for new good projects.
    3DS would have interacting with Google Accounts.

    GMail, Blogging, Buzz, Google Earth(3D), Google TV bla bla..

    I don't know much about Linux or anything like that, but as Android is based on Linux, perhaps it could (with a LOT of work I'd guess) be run through Wii Linux with the MiKe kernel. Just a thought.

    i think a UI recreation could be possible, since that is really the selling feature for droid
