HTC HD2 Android

One of the most common complaints about the HTC HD2 upon its release was that it was running Windows Mobile and not the Android OS.  The HTC Linux team has been working on porting Android to the HD2 for a while now, but they finally hit a major breakthrough with the project.  The team has managed to get the HaRET Linux bootloader to play nice with the touchscreen, allowing things like an Android port to work properly.  The stable release of Android for the HD2 is still a little ways off, though, as there are a few bugs left to squash.  Check out a video of an HD2 running Android and then Ubuntu in the video below. 

As I've always said, the Android hacking community is alive and well, and this video just proves that.  While the HTC HD2 is starting to get a little long in the tooth (at least when it comes to the pace of mobile technology), the HTC Linux team has managed to breathe new life into the device.  There's not final release date for this hack, but judging by how smooth it looks in the video, I'm betting that we'll see it sooner rather than later.  Who else is considering picking up an HD2 just to try this out?
