HTC HD2 was the most anticipated Windows Mobile device but according to Microsoft it won’t get Windows Phone 7 update. Tom Codon from HTCPedia forums didn’t like that, and has posted screenshots and videos of HTC HD2 running Windows Phone 7 successfully. Features like Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi are working on the ported OS but overall performance shows some lag but that ain’t an issue. A Beta release will be out soon solving most of the problems.
This has reversed the Steve Ballmer claim that WP7 devices will be called Windows Phone 7 Series and the OS update will not the available to the previous phones. Porting WP7 on HD2 has proven that the hardware of the phone is capable of running WP7.
