Eclair on Kaiser, Vogue and Polaris

Android on Windows Mobile can now be seen on many different devices, but it all started with the Kaiser. The Kaiser, Vogue, and Polaris are three devices that have advanced immensely with Android porting. Their progress can be seen in many places, but mostly by the available ROMs.
