[THEME] HTC HD Mini theme (WVGA)
I was looking for a HTC HD Mini theme, and I couldn’t find it anywhere!
So I desided to find out how I could make a Windows Mobile theme, and I just made my first theme, a HTC HD Mini theme for Windows Mobile!
I took all the information from photo’s and firstlook videos of the HTC HD Mini, with help of the pictures and videos I was able to make this theme.

Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
