Can I make a Samsung Rex 70 an Android phone?

I just have a small question. Can I convert my Samsung Rex 70 into Android? It doesn’t matter to me which version of Android ( I would like Jellybean or ICS but I don’t know whether Rex 70 has the hardware capability). I don’t want Android to lag too much if I put into Rex 70. Please attach step-by-step instructions on how to do so. Rex 70 runs on java. I want to change the OS to Android. Please also include guides on restoring the stock java OS. Also I’m from India so please consider the regional differences in the OS, if any.

Thank you,
Hitesh Nair

    Looking into the specs of your phone,you must not think of installing Android.Moreover,Boot to Gecko (Firefox OS) uses a kernel derived from Android, with a Gecko-based user interface on top of it.

    You can have a look at the articles below for some insights -

    Okay, maybe Android wouldn't work..... but how about the Ubuntu Smartphone OS or the Firefox OS.. I read somewhere the Firefox OS doesn't need that much hardware firepower ..
    Thanks

    Forget about running android on that phone. It is not possible without being a complete expert in android firmwares and drivers.

    I think it has most of the
    needed hardware
    requirements. Just google
    the specs. 10mb inbuilt
    space maybe,not sure but I
    have an Sd card. I could
    boot android from that,
    couldn't I ?

    well to put android on a non android phone it is not easy because of hardware specifications; You need the minimum required ram for android and also other hardware requirements. If i am not wrong your phone has 10 MB inbuilt? not enough

      well it depends, you also need processor to handle android OS. Samsung Rex 70 runs on Samsung’s proprietary operating system which supports Java apps. I doubt your processor (XMM 2250m) will do android as well.

      someone must develop the right Android firmware for your phone otherwise you will have problems either the phone will not boot or some functions not working.
