Windows Phone 7 Series already ported to HTC HD2
Microsoft won’t be shipping Windows Phone 7 Series till the end of the year, but a team of Russian developers has already ported it to the HTC HD2, which won’t be receiving an official update. GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth are working, but the graphics driver still has issues and the interface is a bit laggy.
The team is apparently planning a beta release soon, which would be interesting given that official devices with the OS won’t be out for another 6-8 months. The OS relies on a completely new bootloader that, at least as of now, is not reversible, so once you load this, you won’t be able to go back to Windows Mobile 6.5.
More photos and videos after the break.
