OpeniBoot Will Potentially Bring Android, Linux to Dual-Boot on iPad

Similar to the Android on an iPhone hack that has allowed the original first-generation iPhone and iPhone 3G to get Android 2.2 Froyo loaded, developers are pooling together to get Android ported to the iPad tablet from Apple, allowing the iOS device to dual-boot into either the normal iOS environment or to the Android OS on an iPad. The move could potentially give iPad owners the benefits of Android–mainly the ability to run Flash content on their devices while in Android mode. Dubbed the OpeniBoot project, developers are targeting the iBoot bootloader on iOS devices, so potentially other operating systems can also get dual-boot privileges, such as Linux.
