Not just yet, but the following video of a bare bones Linux kernel running on an iPhone with a dual boot mode may be the biggest iPhone hacking news since the device was first jail broken. The hack, completed by the iPhone Dev Team, may be the only answer to working around iPhone SDK limitations Apple has imposed on developers thus far.
It is completely feasible that with the proper HW drivers iPhone hardware could run a version of Google's Android phone OS. Not that Google's Android OS has a better interface than the current iPhone 2.2 firmware, but Android's openness allows a greater amount of freedom for developers to write third party applications. To date, Apple has become notorious for banning any developers Application from the Apple App Store, if Apple thinks it may duplicate current functionality or threaten anything Apple has planned. As a result, some of the most clever and ingenious apps written for jail broken iphones never make it into the general public's hands, or are severely crippled when they do.
This is a huge step toward an open platform on the iPhones elegant HW.
Here is iPhone Dev Team's video of the hack for all you geeks.
