The Windows Phone platform is not exactly the primary mobile operating system of choice for many people, hence having it languish behind iOS and Android at the moment despite receiving very favorable views from those who have already given it a go, especially in the latest Mango iteration. Well, it seems that there is a HTC HD8 in the works that has recently been spotted running Windows Phone 7 Build 7740 – supposedly taking over where the HTC HD7 left off, continuing the legacy of the Windows Phone 6.5-powered HTC HD2. This might also eventually end up as a Windows 8 device, also known as an Apollo handset. Since it was caught in application stats running Build 7740 of Windows Phone 7 means there is a physical unit somewhere out there in Romania, over the Vodafone network, but that is about as far as we can get before the trail runs cold. Do you think HTC will spring a surprise on the masses at CES next week, or at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month?
