New Phone Canvas Working in Landscape for HD2 – Windows Mobile
If you are a lucky owner of the last Windows Mobile device, the powerful HD2, this will be of your liking. XDA member Laurentius26, who is well know for his ROMs on several devices, has managed to add landscape and auto rotate support for phone canvas.
