Windows Mobile Running on Windows Phone 7

What a simple tweet can do with ones heartbeat is incredible. XDA Recognized Developer Cotulla tweeted a link to a Youtube video showing what appears to be an HTC HD7 running Windows Mobile. It seems to be some kind of emulator which runs Windows Mobile 6.1 on top of Windows Phone 7. Using virtual buttons to imitate hardware buttons, the Dark Force Team (DFT) shows us that actually almost all functions work, even games play fine.

By simply pressing the back button, you can go back to Windows Phone 7. Windows Mobile will show up as a program in the task manager, so you can simply switch back when you want. There isn’t much information about this yet, but we expect to hear more from DFT soon. You wonder why anyone would ever want Windows Mobile again? Well we’re asking ourselves that too, but it does give some nostalgic feel to the modern and clean Windows Phone UI.
