Android Shown Up and Running on Japanese Phone Prototype

Illustration for article titled Android Shown Up and Running on Japanese Phone Prototype

Japanese cellphone company Willcom has shown the new Android phone OS up and running on phone hardware (although a reference board and not an actual phone), demonstrating multitasking functionality such as answering a call while browsing Google Maps. Can you feel the excitement?! Android isn't going to be all that exciting until user-made apps come along to make the open-source OS live up to its pedigree, but until then it's still fun to follow it's march towards being loaded on a real phone you can actually use.
