HD2 running Honeycomb

If there’s one thing you can be sure of about the Android community, it’s their dedication to get things done especially when it comes to porting the latest versions of Android to different phones. The folks over at XDA-developers have done it again. This time they’ve managed to port Honeycomb over to the HTC HD2 – a phone that was built to run Windows Mobile. Anyway, like most first versions of these ROMs, there are always problems and in this case only a certain number of features work: it boots, touchscreen, LED and screen-off works, hardware buttons are properly mapped, it has graphics hardware acceleration, data should be working, browser works and so does SD mounting. Pretty impressive, since most of these Honeycomb ports can’t do much except allow you to play around with the Android homescreens. Hit the break for a video of it in action, and head here if you’d like to get your hands on the ROM (make sure you backup and know what you’re doing as usual).
