ACL from OpenMobile lets Android applications run on MeeGo

ACL Gives Andriod to MeeGoOpenMobile lets Android apps run on MeeGo

The Linux-based operating system MeeGo might soon get a great vitamin boost in the form of ACL, a software solution from a company called OpenMobile.

ACL, that stands for Application Compatibility Layer, allows users to run Android applications seamlessly on MeeGo. The applications are installed alongside native applications, and once installed it’s hard to tell the difference between native MeeGo, and Android applications. The applications will run in full-screen mode, just as they would on a Tablet or an Android phone.

This platform will not work with the official Google Android Market, but there is third party app stores that will let you download applications, for instance Amazon Appstore and SlideMe app store. This will make it possible to install thousands of applications for MeeGo fairly soon.

OpenMobile have put together a  video showing of a demo of some of the features.
