HTC Mondrian Windows Phone 7 Concepts

The recent leak of the ROM from the HTC Mondrian has inspired xda-members and news writers ElCondor and Livven to create some design concepts for this very first Windows Phone 7 device by HTC.

As there are no leaked images of the actual device yet, both concepts have their own interesting and unique features: While ElCondor’s has a very elegant feel with a slightly brushed aluminium look to it, Livven’s is largely based on the design of the first Touch Diamond. Here are some thoughts from ElCondor about his concept:

Many HTC Mondrians have been floating around lately. Because the Mondrian is my dream device, I decided to make a concept that comes as close as possible to HTC’s way of design. If you take a look at the phone, you’ll notice that the buttons come straight from HTC Android devices. First I wanted to create a small ‘chin’, just like the Desire, but it broke the design. The shiny brushed metal at the bottom of the devices is inspired by the same metal used in the HTC Wildfire. The Wildfire is the newest design from HTC, so I think it’s pretty logical that they will keep the design like this. Although the concept looks pretty big, it’s smaller than the HD2, with WVGA resolution and an 1,3Ghz Snapdragon processor.

Continue on to the appropriate forum thread to view ElCondor’s concept thread and Livven’s concept thread.

Dual Boot on Android: A Power User’s Holy Grail?

Many of you probably dual-boot your personal computers, be it to run Linux alongside Windows or because you have a Mac and hate OS X. On a computer platform, the process can be a life-saver for a variety of reasons, particularly software compatibility/integration. It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames. On computers, the process has gotten relatively simpler over time, with Microsoft and Apple typically supporting the notion....
