Video shows off the HTC HD2 booting into Windows Phone 7?
Previously, it was made widely known that the venerable smartphone would not be receiving any Windows Phone 7 treatment since it basically didn't meet Microsoft's stringent standards for their next generation mobile platform.
However, we see today a video from ROM hacker Cotulla that depicts the handset going through a boot up process and into Windows Phone 7. But unfortunately, it doesn't clearly show the actual platform being used at all, so it's hard to gauge if it is even usable at this point. Still, it does give current handset owners some hope that the impossible is indeed possible, but if it isn't, then they can always resort to Android.

I am not too surprised since HD2 meets all the WP7 hardware requirement except that HD2 has no camera shutter and 5 buttons instead of 3.

So there is still current Window 6 phone upgradeable to 7 if the requirement meets?

^Probably won't be OTAed by Microsoft. Developers will probably make it work just like how they ported Android over.
