Google's Eric Schmidt may have put Android on N9

Nokia may have experimented with Android on the Nokia N9 as an alternative to MeeGo, according to a source. Photos sent to Engadget appear to show an N9 running a stock Gingerbread install. The phone may have been part of Google chief Eric Schmidt's effort to convince Nokia CEO Stephen Elop to use Android as an alternative to MeeGo.

Instead, Nokia committed to Windows Phone in February of this year. Nokia's first Windows Phone prototype, codenamed Sea Ray may make its first official appearance at the Nokia World show in October.
