HTC HD2 gets a shot at MeeGo, still suffering from abandonment issues
Poor HD2, it could never know life as a (legitimate) Windows Phone 7 handset, and instead has to sustain the indignity of hack after hack -- slouching back to the slums of its Windows Mobile 6.5 default as its only respite. Well, here's another shovelful of shame: MeeGo 1.1 has been ported to the phone, and it looks pretty snazzy. It runs about as well as anything runs MeeGo right now (which is to say: very poorly), but we see some promise in this OS as a deliciously open Android alternative, and the basic UI seems very comfy on the HD2's ahead-of-its-time gargantuan screen. Check out a video of MeeGo in action after the break. If you listen very closely you can hear the sound of the HD2 weeping large, colorful tears.
