Despite being released back in 2009 the HTC HD2 remains a oft-talked about device. The reason for this is the fact that at the time and even still the HD2 is a highly advanced device. If you’re not familiar with its specs it features a 4.3-inch display with 800 x 480 resolution, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 576MB of RAM, 1GB of storage with microSDHC slot for up to 32GB of additional storage, 5 megapixel rear facing camera with autofocus and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.5.
If you’ve been paying attention you’ll probably know that Windows Mobile is no longer supported by Microsoft with the company instead focusing its efforts on Windows Phone 7. Unfortunately, despite running Microsoft software it has been said that the HTC HD2 will not be getting an official update to Windows Phone 7. Luckily, the hacking community has been hard at work and it seems that when the Windows Phone 7 Mango update hits it will be available for more than just those smartphones running the platform at launch.
That’s right, according to recent reports there are rumors floating around that a team dubbed the Dark Forces Team will have a working Windows Phone 7 Mango ROM at some point this week. When exactly the ROM will drop we’re not sure but we will surely keep you posed. Stay tuned.
