    This phone?

    Supposed to have Android on it already. Lol at the fake "Google" branding on the back, though.

    Its not a ''real'' android OS. its their OS skinned to look like android. And the ''with google'' on the phone means it just has links to google.com as a widget.

    It doesnt have the same keyboard or run games or use the android app store. Its just a cheap phone skinned to look like the real thing. And at 200 a pop you could have ebay'd a new or gently used G1 for the same price.
    (i got my like new G1 a year ago for 150)

    No, not a chance. The phone is a cheap Chinese knock-off. They basically looked at an Android phone and tried to make something that almost looked like it, except they only had 5 minutes and one programmer. I somehow doubt they have released the drivers for their hardware that would be needed to port Android over.
    There's MeeGo, and webOS (sort of Linux). But no, you won't be able to install them either
