Windows 7.8 for the HTC HD7!
While Android is the dominant operating system on XDA at the moment, things are finally starting to heat up for Windows Phone users. Even though Microsoft has stated that existing WP7 devices will not be fully upgraded to Windows Phone 8, development has continued to move forward. In particular, the latest iteration of Windows Phone, version 7.8, has now been made available for the HTC HD7, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer dotcompt.

Of course, remember that this is still in unpolished form and will need some work before it can be considered a perfect daily driver, but that won’t stop most HD7 users from testing this out.

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.
