I just had a play with my friend's Okta Touch which he's running Android on (the phone still has WM6 as base OS I believe).

I hadn't realised that you could fire up Android on a few other phones, and wondered if anyone here can comment on GSM phones for NZ which have working Android ports.

I'm currently using a Nokia E70 but it's on the way out - dreaded joystick failure - so evaluating options. I like that the G1 has a complete keyboard, but for the price I'd definitely consider buying a cheaper phone if it runs Android OS properly.

Has anyone explored Android on HTC Touch in depth? Or tried it on other phones which there are ports to?

Any recommendations for hardware I should consider?

(I love my iPod Touch's UI, but I want a full keyboard on my phone. SSH on the iPod is not as usable as SSH on the Nokia.)

Answering my own question of what else it runs on:

 * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Android#Hardware_products_running_Android links to
 * The HTC Vogue (aka Okta Touch)
 * Nokia N810 (not a phone!)
 * Motorola MING A1200i

Anyone played with these?

Still looking for peoples experiences, etc :)
