    no can’t upgrade it to androide becoz its hardware does’t support……androide has sensors and some more hardware which is not present in this mobile….if u will try to upgrade it it may harm ur phone..so i strongly recommend that don’t do this

  • Saurav Azad

    no i dont think so the hardware support that

  • Junil Maharjan

    I don’t think so, the hardware will not be compatible.

  • Micheal

    no, the hardware doesnt fit

  • Sashritha Peiris

    You probably can after ages of rooting, hacking (nothing illegal) and maybe some coding but I doubt you wil be able to use android at all on your phone unless your phone has a touch screen. On the whole it would be easier, faster and probably cheaper to buy a cheap android phone like the Samsung Galaxy Mini

  • siddharth singh

    it depends on the phone…. now in your case, the internal memory is too low to install android … and the processor also would be too darn slow to run android

  • Mihovil Pletikos

    no…. only a few non android phones can have android…. l

  • Yash Bansal

    No you can’t!
    Only you can upgrade your android version if you if have an android supporting OS.
    Fresh install is not possible!

  • Ahmed Musani

    there has been no rom developed for this phone to mod so no you can’t.

  • susendeep dutta

    You will risk your phone getting bricked and even burned out if you do so.Moreover,the internal memory is 5 MB which is way too low for installing Android.

    • Igor Rizvi?

      yes but it has an sd card extension

    • susendeep dutta

      But the read/write speed and loading times will lag heavily if he’s able to build a successful ROM for his phone.Hardware compatibility is another issue he’s going to face.
