Default Android Found On Windows Mobile's Most Popular Device?

It looks like some of the brilliant minds over at xda-developers have gotten Gingerbread ported over to the HTC HD2, an originally Windows Mobile device.

How would you do that? Well, Talk Android is reporting that the technological wizards over at xda-developers have performed the feat of porting the latest Android version onto the HTC HD2. Visual evidence above suggests that they have indeed been successful. The HD2 is a solid and well-liked handset, and if Windows Mobile is working well for you then you might want to pass on this possibility. But, if you are adventurous type, this might just be a fun thing to try out.</p>

Actually, Xda-Developers have Android running on a number of HTC-based phones including many of the older WM6.5 and 6.0 models. They run under an emulator, which basically shuts down the WM O/S and pushes it out of the way while running Android.

It's quite cool, since they seem to be able to 'catch up' to new versions of Android and interfaces to the hardware pretty quickly.
