There is actually a site dedicated to porting Android to HTC handsets that currently run Windows Mobile: www.androidonhtc.com/

It doesn't seem like it's super active right now, esp. since more and more HTC phones are coming with Android. And even when there is a port it's usually a bit unstable, and not really something I'd rely on for my primary device. You're better off waiting for HTC to come out with a similarly spec'd phone running Android. It'll happen eventually!

This is DEFINITELY the spot to check:
forum.xda­-developers.com­/forumdisplay.php­?f­=534

Doesn't appear to be anything stable/fully functional yet, but give it time, she's a brand new platform.

The XDA Developer's forum is the best place I've found for HTC related ROM development.

We should all write HTC and ask them for this phone with Android. It's almost a joke for this to come with Win Mobile 6.5.

What's really sad is that anyone who buys this probably won't even get a free upgrade to Windows Mobile 7.0 when it's released later this year.

Well the HTC Passion is basically the same phone with Android, and i believe they already said this phone will get 7 when it comes out.

I may be wrong but I thought I read somewhere that there would not be W Phone 7 upgrades for 6.5 phones. If that is correct I don't know why anyone would buy this phone now.

You are correct they confirmed its not getting winmo 7 officially but I would still buy it, might still since Tmobile isn't to open about many high end phones as I thought they would be.
