ACL and Alien Dalvik can run Android Apps on Non-Android Devices
Samsung is going to spend 3 Million US dollars as prize money to try to encourage developers to develop more apps for Bada.
My take is they should just use that $3M and pay OpenMobile for its Android Compatibility Layer or pay Myriad for it's Alien Dalvik so that Android Apps can run on bada, problem solved for the users and at the same time
Samsung will still make a profit selling apps on it's Samsung Apps store.
Both ACL and Alien Dalvik can run android apps on non android devices.
ACL demoed android apps running on Meego (nokia N9)
and Alien Dalvik demoed google apps and Photoshop for Android running on
a nokia N900.
Alien Dalvik will even demo Android apps running on,of all things, an Ipad.
(as if apple needed more apps
So im just saying the money Samsung is using for it's app developer contest
might be better spent on using these available commercial solutions so that
Bada can use android apps without porting.
Problem with ACL and Alien Dalvik is that it's not available for endusers and are both targeted at Manufacturers and Operators.
