It seems like every day there’s a new story about someone figuring out how to install Google’s Android operating system on a phone that was designed to run Windows Mobile.

XDA-developers forum member Dark Ninja has released a tool that lets you cover up the default Windows Mobile taskbar with one that uses Android-style icons. There are also a few themes that go with the taskbar.

Dark Ninja’s Android Taskbar is available for most Windows Mobile phones and PDAs with VGA, WVGA, and QVGA displays.
