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.
