Android HDPI WP7 Layout
I guess even the industry’s best has a little envy for the new comer. Android users can now enjoy a Kin/WP7 like layout on their devices thanks to XDA member newone757, who made this new guide for people that have the time to follow it.

If those few steps look simple to you, then head over to the thread and get the rest of the guide.
