Alien Dalvik will let you run Android apps on the Nokia N9
In case you were worried about application support for the N9, you have one less reason to worry now. Along with applications created specifically for the phone, you will even be able to run Android applications on it.
Thanks to a little something called the Alien Dalvik, a software that lets you run unmodified Android application on non-Android devices. All the developers have to do is repackage the .apk files and the applications can be used on other devices running Alien Dalvik. The application is able to utilize the full potential of the hardware and the user experience is virtually identical to that of using it on regular Android device. The software emulates the hardware controls on Android devices so the application can be controlled on non-Android devices.
According to Myriad, the developers of Alien Dalvik, it will be made available for MeeGo sometime later this year.
