    Welcome to Android Forums!

    Theoretically, since Android is a linux based OS, it should be able to run on any device with compatible architecture. If you want to list the exact device model, maybe one of our developers can answer your question.

    Unfortunately, Android is not a generic installation. It has to be tailored for a specific device so it can communicate properly with the hardware. I have seen attempts to get other non-android phones to run Android and it's always marginal at best (a disaster at worst). If you are looking to make this your daily phone, I'd advise against it. If it's an experiment just to see if you can, then you might want to check in with the communities surrounding your specific model and ask there if any developer has tried it.

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to locate any specific instructions to get your phone model working with Android. I suspect that even if it were possible, it would be fat to much work for far too little result (it would run buggy, if at all.) If you want to try Android, you'd be better off replacing your existing phone rather than trying to shoehorn the Android OS onto it.

    I took a look at the phone and the size alone would prevent any version of Android from working properly on this handset. Sorry.

    No, it's not possible.

    Again, let me reiterate that attempts to install Android on phones not specifically designed to run Android will either run is such a poor and degraded state as to make the phone virtually unusable, or might permanently brick your phone.

    It is not recommended.

    Welcome to our AndroidForums :).

    See all the replies above...the manufacturer would have had to make a specific effort to create/port/test Android to devices like these...it's not that it's impossible, it's just very difficult / time-consuming / etc. and the general public (and even many developers) do not have access to all of the hardware specs and driver information that would be needed.

    In short: very, very likely not / no.

    Welcome to our AndroidForums :).

    Unfortunately, the answer is basically if it didn't come with Android already on it, you're not going to be able to get/install Android for it.

    Sorry.
