HTC HD2 Android and Ubuntu builds now available for mass consumption

I think that this would be the only reason i would buy this phone.  Dont get me wrong the phone’s screen is amazing, but the os as usual is garbarge.  I think one of the biggest mistakes when they released this phone was not waiting to release it with windows mobile 7. Yes its still windows mobile but anything is better then 6.5. Thanks to alot of hard work by alot of people it looks like android is being able to run on the HD2 which looks amazing.

HTC HD2 Android and Ubunbu builds now available for mass consumption

We’re approaching the end of an era — the legacy of Windows Mobile handsets getting spotted running some open sourced OS or another shortly after their release. With Windows Phone 7 on the horizon the HD2 will surely be one of the last, but you can extend that grand tradition just a bit longer by installing your choice of Ubuntu Karmic Koala or Android 2.1. Those builds we reported on earlier have been made available for general consumption and, while installing them certainly doesn’t seem to be entirely risk free, neither of them touch the phone’s internal flash, so you’re never more than a reset away from the comforts of WinMo. If you’re feeling adventurous this weekend, both downloads are on the other end of the source link below.
