HTC HD2 is a wonderful piece of hardware. But if you thought Windows Mobile 6.5 made the software feel a bit old, here is some good news. Folks at the XDA Developers have succeeded in porting Android, Ubuntu and other Linux platforms to the HTC HD2.
Of course, I am nowhere near technical as these people are and will not attempt to give you a step-by-step instruction. But here are some caveats before you hit over to the XDA forum. The procedure is risky and can void your warranty. Besides you run the risk of permanently bricking your phone and so please do proceed with caution.

Is a new Windows Mobile 6.5 (or so) based Nokia smartphone in the works? This is a rumor that does not have too much of backing, yet is interesting in the backdrop of a leaked internal presentation that shows “Windows” as one of the platforms that Nokia is working on.
For one, this could as well mean Windows Mobile 7 and not the older classic Windows Mobile OS. And that appears more likely. However, with lack of information in this regard, we will just have to wait and watch if Nokia decides to pursue with WinMo 6.5 one more time. What do you think? Possible?
LG’s Fathom, a phone with smart specs, but one of the last Windows 6.5 devices to make it is expected to launch on May 27th. According to sources close to MobileCrunch, the Verizon-tied handset should be available at a price of $99.99 with a two year contract.
The LG Fathom will bring a slide-out QWERTY keyboard built for a 1GHz SnapDragon processor. Without a Verizon contract, you may get hold of a device for $499.99 from Best Buy
