windows8 htc shiftDo you happen to own a HTC Shift that hails from the 2007 era, and ponder over what you could use it for in modern day context apart from being a paperweight? Here is an idea – why not install Windows 8 on this puppy?

The good people over at XDA Developers managed to get Microsoft’s latest Developer Preview OS up and running onto the aged UMPC, so those who have a pretty decent working knowledge of technicalities as well as extra time and the right equipment can always give it a shot. After all, you need not worry about voiding any warranties or gimping your handset – no one would want to offload the HTC Shift from you anyways. Check out the video in Francais after the jump for additional details.
