Windows RT Hacked to Run on HTC HD2

Remember the HTC HD2 Windows Mobile phone? Hackers have basically put everything on it from Android to Windows Phone 8. Now, however, the three-year old phone has been tweaked to run Windows RT. Yes, the operating system that’s currently powering Microsoft’s entry-level Surface RT tablet. That’s pretty impressive, especially considering that it has such a small screen and specs that are ancient by any tech enthusiast’s standards.

We’re not too surprised to see this though, because Surface RT runs on ARM-based processors. It’s powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 chip on the Surface RT, for example, which is also used on dozens of other smartphones. We’re guessing the experience is pretty limited, since the operating system was designed for devices with much larger screens, but it’s pretty neat nonetheless.
