Breaking News: Windows Phone 7 ROM for Upcoming HTC Device Surfaces
Seeing some videos of the new Windows Phone 7 and test driving the operating system through an emulator is nice and already gets the discussions and speculations flowing.

Wait no more, because member 911sniper posted a Windows Phone 7 ROM from a HTC device named the HTC Mondrian.
The posting of the ROM is so fresh out the oven that at this point there’s not a lot of concrete information about either the device or the ROM itself.
