Dust off that old Treo 650 you threw in the drawer and promised never to return to may be this close to a resurrection. What on earth could make a Treo 650 useful again? Android. Some clever hacker (with quite a bit of time on their hands — for more reasons than one) has ported the open development OS to Palm’s old flagship device.

Now don’t go smashing your new age smartphone vowing to return to your long lost love as the video above shows boot up is s. l o. o. o. o. o. w. Still, as a proof of concept and a few geeky chuckles, it’s pretty cool. Maybe Palm should think about a Palm/Android device of their own. As Samsung has shown us, having multiple OS/options/significant others may not be so bad…
