Back in January we saw the HTC HD2, which was a Windows Phone 6.5 device running Windows Phone 7, and now the guys over at the XDA Developers have ported the latest version of Windows Phone onto the HTC HD2, Windows Phone 7 Mango.
You can see Windows Phone 7 Mango running on the HTC HD2 in the video below, and although Microsoft has no plans to release Windows Phone 7 Mango for the HTC HD2, it seems that Microsoft are amused at the developers creativity.
“We say tinker away with Mango and enjoy the juice,” Microsoft spokesman Bill Cox said in a statement to AllThingsD. “But beware the fine print — unlocking phones may void your warranty.”
Microsoft will be releasing Windows Phone 7 Mango for all Windows Phone 7 devices, but the company has no plans to release an update for older Windows Phone 6.5 devices, but it looks like they don’t have a problem with developers porting the OS to older devices.
