The iPhone DevTeam is working on this, so you'll be able to mount android on iphone.
The project is called iBoot, and it goal is to give users an option weather to load the iphone with it's regular OS, or a Linux based OS, since android is Linux based you'll be able to load it on to your iphone.
It is possible to run android on the iphone if it is possible to for the system to use the iphone's hardware which I am sure the Dev team can do.
One thing that is tricky in the hardware sense is that the android system requires the home and return hard buttons. Iphone only has a home button.
All the other android phones also have the call and end call buttons. I am not sure those are required, but if they are that will also cause problems.

Installing an OS other than iOS on an iPhone is not supported by Apple. However, some users have been able to load Android on iPhone 1, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch 1G.

Two things I don't like about the IPhone:
1) It can only handle one e-mail account. You would think they would change that since Blackberry's can handle up to 10 e-mail accounts.
2) You can't cut and paste text on an IPhone.
When I spoke to T-Mobile I asked about 3G having bluetooth even though it wasn't listed in the specs. They said it was in it.
The preorders for the 3G were over 25,000. I was eligible to get one but ended up going to a Blackberry because the 3G doesn't allow for phone calls on Hot Spot. It does have wi-fi on 3G but it only works for data only.
Just depends on what you want for features.
I phone misses Some really important functionality.
The Virtual keyboard, while innovative and good looking, lacks the functionality of a proper QWERTY Keyboard, The contracts in the UK and possibly the US for the iPhone are an absolute Rip off, and the applications in the Appstore arent nothing special.
now on the Other hand
The T mobile G1 IMO is way better thn the iphone. it has better hardware Specs such as better camera, Full Physical Qwerty Keyboard and Proper Google GPS etc.
also because the OS is completely open source, absolutely any application can be made to work on the phone ! anything you can think of. if you want something creating, chances are it will be added to the OS at some point through the amazing Android Market !
Also the T-mobile contract prices are Way more better than that of the iPhone. and the customisation of the G1 way outperforms that of the iPhone !
