Windows The HTC HD2 is probably one of the most enduring mobile phones out there. While it originally shipped with Windows Mobile way back in 2009, it has become one of the most hacker-friendly devices out there, and hackers have managed to port virtually everything to the device - various versions of Android, MeeGo, Ubuntu, and Windows Phone have found their way to the HD2. Russian hacker Cotulla, responsible for many of these ports, has just announced the next big port: Windows RT is now running on the HD2.

It was a logistical issue. Ensuring a smooth update from WP7 to WP8 for new devices, while taking care of data migration for two different OSes and figuring out a way to provision and update millions of existing devices without a hitch is no small feat. It is likely the resources to do so were not there to justify the gain.

Not that I agree with the decision, I think it was poor planning on Microsoft's part.
