Use Your HD2 USB Port As A Host

The titan of all time, the HD2 still has a lot of mileage left under its 4.3 inch hood. Even in its native Windows Mobile 6.5, people seem to still be going rather hard at it in terms of development. In this new development, XDA member Cotulla from the DFT team brings us another jaw dropping development on this wonderful device. It seems that after a long time, mainly due to him putting this project off to make room for things like Windows Phone 7 and several other projects that he has worked on over the last year and a half. Enabling USB host functionality will allow your device to recognize USB devices that you would normally use on your computer such as mice, external keyboards, and most importantly, memory (thumb drives, external hard drives, etc). If you were itching to have more storage on your HD2 but do not feel like shelling out US$50 for a 32 GB microSD card, now is your chance to get more storage for a lot less money.

As good as this may sound, it still has its limitations though. Cotulla states that for the time being, it only has HID and MassStorage profiles and that it is also a proof of concept. In any case, this is a great piece of news for those of you in possession of an HD2 and who are still sticking to good old Windows Mobile. Please leave some feedback for the dev if you have a chance to test this.

this project was started long time ago, but then, during luck of free time for this project, it was suspended.
Now, because it seems very hard to improve it more, we make decision to release developed stuffs. Also more interesting projects now appear

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
