Following the successful port of the Android-powered HTC Desire HD ROM over to the Windows Phone 6.5-powered HTC HD2, another XDA member has managed to perform the same feat with the HTC Desire Z ROM — better known as the Vision or the T-Mobile G2. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the ROM has good performance and benchmarks well, with the only downside being lack of camera support, which admittedly is probably a dealbreaker for quite a few users.
Both the Desire Z and the Desire HD are announced but unreleased Android 2.2 Froyo handsets sporting the latest version of HTC Sense interface along with HTCSense.com backup/location service compatibility. As we covered both in an article and on video (re-posted below), this new Sense features quite a few nice additions, including skinning, landscape capability, cached maps in a new navigation app called Locations, and perhaps most useful on a daily basis, that convenient quick boot up sorcery.
