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.

I’ve selected the most popular ROM that is available for these devices, and from what the comments say, it’s the best. The ROM has many advances that put it at the top of the porting game, with only a few things that are not functioning properly just yet.

HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well.
