I have an HTC Touch, code named Vogue, or in Verizon land they call it a xv6900. I am booting Android 1.1 off of my SD card with Haret. It's able to make phone calls, SMS, and the internet with the help of a PPP dialer app. I can also install any app in the market just fine. I can get you more information about it if you want. I'm in love with it, and I wish I could switch to a G1 or G2, but my company pays for my phone bill and they won't really let me switch. There are several drawbacks, the obvious lack of Wifi/acceloremeter, and GPS. So it's not nearly as nice as the G1, but it's working and it's making calls on Verizons network.
Yeah sure it's pretty straight forward. This will NOT break any functionality of the standard Windows Mobile on the ROM, this will run ONLY from the SD card so you will need atleast a 512mb SD card, I would suggest at least a 1gb card. In my case I have a 2gb and I'm wanting to get a new one since I'm installing so many apps from the Android market. The files are zip archive with the linux image as well as a config file which goes with Haret to help it boot the image. Here is the link where I found all of this stuff http://www.androidonhtc.com/vogue/install
Keep in mind that there are other models you could install on, I'm just telling you from my own experiences.
ok I went into the webpage and I found 4 different downloads Kaiser, Polaris, Vogue and Diamond. which one did you install on your cellphone? The cellphone that I have is a piece of crap SMT5800.
The worse phone I ever had! even my Motorola Brick phone I had back in the 90s worked better than this piece of... :=)
I bought 2 Droids on launch day. Absolutely incredible phone, easily the best I have ever used. I spent a lot of time on the iPhone, and I can honestly say that it has nothing on Android 2.0 as far as I am concerned.
Using this phone has me seriously considering getting into Android development, if nothing else than for the fact I can have my own code running on this thing without any draconian limitations or hacking around.
I picked up one Friday the 6th when it was released, I figured that was the closest we'll get to a linux phone since from what I've read Android runs on a modified linux kernel.
it shows up as USB storage so copying mp3's and pictures on was no problem, can even use rsync to make it easier.
I setup gcaldaemon to get my calendar going from korganizer up to google calendar and therefore back down to the phone.
