New Video of HD2 Running WP7 Surfaces

Surely, you can remember that not too long ago, XDA member Cotulla posted a video of WP7 booting on an HD2. According to a few sources, some people over at xda.cn seem to have a pretty much fully working port running on the HD2. Real or fake? We are not certain, but the videos show pretty convincing evidence that this is closer to a reality than what many people give it credit for.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
