Android, with limited functionality gets ported to the HTC Touch Diamond, Touch Pro

We have seen Android ported to a handful of devices so far, most of which seem to be falling into either the netbook or MID category, however this latest has Android running on two popular HTC phones.

The models are the HTC Touch Diamond and Touch Pro, both of which have gotten the Android treatment, unfortunately the overall device support is pretty limited at this point. In other words, if you rely on your phone for anything aside from sending or receiving SMS and surfing the web (over the cellular connection) then you should hold off.

Basically, while Android is running on these phones, they are still in need of drivers that support other important items such as the Wi-Fi, microphone, speaker, Bluetooth, GPS, accelerometer and more. In other words, while a cool trick, this is one that is not really ready for many people to begin playing with.
