Nokia N9 was unveiled by the Finnish manufacturer at Nokia World 2011 running the Linux MeeGo OS. Now, the developers have ported the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS to this handset, to prove the versatility of the Android OS.
According to a report by UnleashThePhone, the developers at NITDroid project have ported the latest iteration of Android to the first MeeGo OS handset, N9. They have released a video, which shows some of the features of the Jelly Bean OS on Nokia N9.
The Jelly Bean OS has been ported on to the Nokia N9 before 90% of the Android smartphones in the market have received the update. There are no details about when a stable Jelly Bean update will be rolled out to the N9.
Earlier this year, Gizbot carried a report, in which Nokia N9 was successfully running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Moreover, the MeeGo OS is getting an app store, like Google Play Store for Android and App Store for iOS.
