Many users have been confused whether Windows Phone 7 Series will be coming to older phones when the HTC HD2 was shown running the operating system.
It was admitted that it was a hacked version of the operating system running on the device, with HTCPedia forum member Tom Codon behind the port.
However, besides a slight amount of lag in specific operations thanks to some incompatibility issues with the graphics processor (which will be sure to be resolved), the phone performs very well.
The GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth all perform correctly in this device, which can often be a problem when applying a new OS on a phone, and the web browser appears to run well.
The only problem that Microsoft is claiming is that the OS can’t be ported backwards, because it doesn’t have the correct hardware specifications that the future devices will be running to.
Moreover, despite this new hack clearly shows that it can work fine on legacy phones, it’s doubted that Microsoft will be changing its tune any day soon.
