HTC HD2 Gets Windows Phone 7 Series Unofficially


Posted on March 28th, by Evan Selleck in archive. 1 Comment

There wasn’t a doubt in anyone’s mind that the HTC HD2 was going to get Windows Phone 7 Series, the next mobile Operating System from Redmond-based Microsoft. Sure, the official word on the street is that the company has overlooked their Windows Mobile 6.5 powerhouse due to some button mishaps, but that’s not stopping the powerful XDA community from doing what they do best: port ROMs.

Thanks to a team over in Russia (yes, Russia), we’re getting video proof that the ROM is indeed hacked onto the current generation HD2. The good news doesn’t stop there, though. Everything seems to be working just fine: GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth. Which, if you’re familiar with porting ROMs at all, those are some of the things that can get lost in the translation. But, as the videos are showing off, everything is working, and that’s great news. Though, we can definitely see some lag, which probably has everything to do with the graphics driver. No easy fix to that, but what’s a little lag when you think about the fact that you have Windows Phone 7 Series on your HD2. Check out the videos to see it for yourself. The Russian-based team is saying that they should have this ready to go soon. That’s definitely before this holiday season, which means thanks to the developers out there, we might see Windows Phone 7 Series hit the market long before Microsoft intended it to. Thumbs up.
