Android goes virtual
As of today, Myriad’s Dalvik virtual machine can run any Android application on the Maemo-based Nokia N900, with other platforms to follow soon.
The idea is to get manufacturers to preinstall Alien Dalvik, as the company calls its virtual machine, or licence the VM to developers who can bundle it with their applications.
