&#a hundred and sixty;Tom Codon of HTCPedia has posted screenshots which shows off the device running an early build of Windows Phone OS 7.0.
Almost everything is said to be working, including Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and so on. The only downside is the graphics driver, which is said to be choppy/laggy at this point in time. A Beta release of this ROM is expected soon.
Earlier this month, Microsoft confirmed it time and again that HTC HD2 is not going to get the Windows Phone 7 Series upgrade despite of all the rumors which hinted towards a possible upgrade path for HD2. This was probably due to strict hardware chassis requirements which required Back, Start and Search button on all Windows Phone 7 Series devices. HTC HD2 was missing the dedicated hardware button for Bing, and system-wide search.[via Engadget]
