You must be surprised looking at above picture, but its true the almost perfect HTC HD 2 is running Windows Phone 7 Series ROM.
Some clever Russian hackers have managed to get the HD2 running an early build of Microsoft’s upcoming mobile OS overhaul. Now we’ve got what looks to be the first screenies of the WP7S OS running on an HD2
Its virtually impossible with the current hardware of HTC HD 2 running WinMo 6.5 OS to ride WinMo 7 OS but somehow these guys made it possible.
According to sources almost everything is working including WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth. However, the graphics driver is still showing problems and there is noticeable device lag.
Let’s see if HTC HD 2 could officially run WP7S ROM before Microsoft officially launches its device. Time will tell.
Possibly this is the iPhone killer you were waiting for?
We already knew this was about to coming, but now its official, let’s go ahead and do the official "launch" story!
So, the much sought after "GooglePhone", the Nexus One has been officially unveiled by Google (in chagrin with HTC) at its much talked about Android Press Event earlier today. The phone, termed by Google as a "superphone" has the looks, the specs and the backing to take on the mighty iPhone.The specs which are the same as we had posted in our earlier stories about this device does make the phone a powerful computing device, bundled in a 11.9mm, 130gram package. The Nexus One is now officially available in the US and will soon be available in "most countries" across the globe. Officially, it is not here in India though as yet. We would be taking an in-depth look at the phone, its future prospects and if this thing really blows the iPhone away.
The unlocked Nexus would cost you a cool USD 529, (Rs.25,000) which seems to be a good price for the phone of this calibre. That by the way sure does not look like the price at which the Nexus One will arrive officially in India! That said, the current iteration of the phone does NOT support the 3G bands that will be operational in India, maybe this year only. However, Google has confirmed that more localized versions of the Nexus One is on the anvil — so we have that bit covered.
Here are all the tit bits of the killer baby.
We admire your tenacity and all, but did you realize that both Nokia World and IFA kicked off today? Cool, just making sure. Now that we’re past that, we’d like to introduce you (as in, the audience) to one of the world’s first “Windows phones,” the Touch2. Packing a full touchscreen and an all-too-familiar design (remember the HTC Mega?), this here smartphone will launch with Windows Mobile 6.5, the outfit’s TouchFLO interface, Microsoft Exchange support, a redesigned Internet Explorer Mobile and the new My Phone service to back up and sync photos, music, contacts and text messages for free from the Touch2 to the web. There’s no word on exact pricing and availability, but it’ll be available somewhere in this wide world October 6th, with broad availability in Europe and select Asian markets promised for early Q4.
