Android apps for MeeGo?

OpenMobile has introduced a new software application that enables Android apps to run on MeeGo and smaller applications

Open Mobile has produced the Application Compatibility Layer (ACL), which uses Dalvik VM and Goggle’s runtime environment, once running it enables any tablet or smartphone operating system to run all 250,000 Android apps without the need for modifications.

It’s not just MeeGo either, the company is planning to create versions for Bada, QNX, Symbian, WebOS and Windows.

Check out the demo below, but you don’t have to launch Android- you can just run the app.


Unfortunately, the app can’t be installed by us consumers – instead the company is pitching it to OEM developers.

ACL seems to perform a similar function to Myriad’s Alien Dalvik software, earlier this year we brought you news that the MeeGo-touting N9 could potentially run Android apps.

Only earlier this year at the Blackberry Developers Conference, the Android App Player was shown running on the Blackberry Playbook.

It’s a shame MeeGo isn’t coming to the UK – the N9 with Android apps could be a killer smartphone.
