Getting Closer… New Video of HD2 Running WP7 Surfaces

There is already proof that the HD2 can indeed boot WP7, but it seems that even though we can’t see a whole lot of development going on in our forums, things are moving back stage. XDA member Samsunguy posted two videos that have surfaced from a Chinese website called xda.cn. These not only show WP7 booting as per the original video released by XDA member Cotulla, but they show the OS going at what seems to be full functionality. Needless to say, that we can only see that the screen works and the phone module seems to work as well. We no nothing else about the remainder of the phone (Wifi, BT, GPS, sensors, etc).

As it is an unknown source, we have no idea about ETA, how far into the process this port is, or even what the requirements are. What we do know is that it seems to be a bit slow to start up, but hey… an extra 15 seconds never hurt anyone.

Update: There is a newer video and this shows a lot more proof for you non believers

Do you know anything else regarding this? If you have any updates and would like to share them, please do so in the discussion thread.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
