Android on HTC TYTN II (Kaiser)

So, I’ve just been playing with Google Android on the HTC TYTN II (or, if you prefer nicknames – the HTC Kaiser, or ATT Tilt or Vodafone V1615, or MDA Vario II). It’s really rather good. The difference in responsiveness betweeen Android and Windows Mobile 6.1 is incredible, due in large part to the pitiful video driver support when running under WinMo. It’s great to finally see what the hardware can really do, after having been hamstrung by Microsoft for the last year.

It should be noted that not everything works yet, and in particular many Android screens are not set up well to run on a device of this resolution, but even taking that into account, I now have my sights set on migrating permanently from Windows Mobile to Android at the earliest opportunity.
