The Recap

Windows Phone 7 Shown Running on HD2 (Video)

Quite possibly what many HD2 owners have been waiting since the announcement of WP7 earlier this year. XDA member Cotulla and DTF seem to have succeeded in booting the long awaited new OS from Microsoft into a device that was said to be completely incapable of running WP7 (both by HTC and Microsoft). The port is far from complete and there is no download, flashing instructions, or anything available at the moment. However, as with many ports, the first step was getting it to boot. Now, let the feature development begin. This is a huge step in the right direction for one of the best Windows Mobile devices that HTC has ever released. Consider this, sometime in the next few months, you could have a device capable of booting into: WM 6.5.x, Android (2.2), Ubuntu, or WP7 (and even Windows XP if you use an emulator), depending on your mood.
