Any device these days gets hacked and fooled around with. The iPhone is of course no exception. Developer David Wang hacked an Android OS version to boot on the original iPhone.
The iPhone actually has a boot loader to either boot iPhone OS or Android.
The Android OS comes up, but overall the quality of the port is alpha says Wang.
He says that a port to iPhone 3G should be straight forward. To make Android work on the current 3GS is supposedly taking more effort.
Besides the coolness factor of owning an iPhone that runs Android I do not see much use. More details can be learned in the video below and on this blog.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
