BIOS Boot Animation for Your Windows Phone

If you’ve read our recent article on the pretty neat BIOS-like boot animation for Android but couldn’t find anything similar for your Windows Mobile phone, then look no further!

The original boot package by Wajk works on QVGA, VGA and WVGA devices and includes a BIOS animation accompanied by the nostalgic soundtrack of system beeps and a whirring hard drive.
