Want to See Android on Your Opal?
Some of xda-developers’ most interesting development projects focus on porting the Google Android operating system to devices that originally run the more outdated versions of Windows Mobile.
Projects such as XDANDROID, which gives users of phones such as the Touch Pro, Touch Diamond, and XPERIA X1 the opportunity to give Android a try, are particularly popular. More recently, major steps forward have been made in running the operating system on the HTC HD2 – arguably the best Windows Mobile 6.x device ever produced.
However, this doesn’t mean that older devices should be left behind.

Although inital progress is promising, the project is looking for more developing talent to help to get it off the ground.
If you would like to try running Android on your Opal or feel that you could contribute something yourself, visit the project thread.

While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
