Five Minutes of Windows Phone 7 on the HTC HD2 (Video)
First there was the initial project of getting Windows Phone 7 to boot on an HTC HD2. Then we saw a video of an alleged full port running on the legacy Windows Mobile device and today we’re presented a five minute video with more Windows Phone 7 running on the HTC HD2.
The video demonstration boots the new operating system on the HTC HD2 side by side with the HTC Surround (which by the way is booting faster) and Windows Phone 7 on the Leo seems to be supporting phone operations too as the author calls the Surround using the HD2. There’s also demonstration of multi-touch, Pictures hub, lock screen, Music hub, Office, settings and more. Looks like November 8 will be bringing not only devices but maybe also support for legacy Windows Mobile handsets courtesy of the underground development community.
What we don’t know yet is the build used on the HTC HD2 as it is different from the final one. We also wonder how services like Zune and Xbox Live would work on a port running on such device. As always, we’re curious of your thoughts!
