Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms. You've probably heard of Bluestacks, which brings the Android world to PCs, Macs and TVs. The American company is just one of the many brands that ports the Android OS to personal computers.

LG SU660 ICS ROM Ported to Nexus S
Most ROMs typically seen on Nexus devices are derivatives of AOSP. That’s to be expected, as the developer friendly nature is a selling point for many. Sometimes, though, it’s fun to see software typically found on OEM-skinned devices on a Nexus. Such is the case with the Samsung Nexus S, which now has a LG SU660 port.
XDA Senior Member GalaxyUser released the ported ROM. While we’d like to tell you that the ROM is fully functional, it unfortunately isn’t. As it is an initial release, there are some issues. The not working list includes:
Can’t unlocking sim card correctly (see screenshot)
Vibrator (i think i know how to fix that)
android.process.media is force closing sometime (because of External SD)
Camera (because of External SD)
Sometime blocking status bar and home
It was also mentioned that phone calls and text messages aren’t currently possible either. These are issues that are being fixed currently, though, so it is only a matter of time before the ROM is usable. As always, anyone who wants to help out should feel free.

And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
