OSNews, Generic OSes Inferno for Android (codename: Hellaphone) has just been announced. Inferno runs on top of the Linux kernel in Android phones, replacing the Java services and UI that ship by default. Inferno's programming language, Limbo, allows applications to be developed quickly and easily. A video demonstrating the device is up on youtube.

Don't be silly, what they have done is a brilliant proof of concept implementation of Plan9/Inferno. The intent was not to show pretty graphics, or even to show functionality, the intent was to show Plan 9/Inferno could be ported.

In terms of importance, this is the bottom layer of an incredible stack. Nothing beats Plan 9 in terms of network access and sync-ability.
