So here is my dilemma.  I'm moving up to Lake Tutira, which means if I want mobile coverage I have to go with Telecom (2degrees and vodafone just don't have ANY reception up there).  I'm looking at the HTC HD2 Next G headset for a number of reasons.

1. Supposedly it is the base unit that MS is using enternally for Windows 7 testing, and will be the first HTC handset to get a Windows 7 Rom upgrade release.

2. Supposedly you can get Android 2.2 running on it (can anyone tell me if you have had any joy putting 2.2 on it).

3. works on the XT full network.

So I could theoretically run Android 2.2 on it (if someone out there can confirm they were successful at getting Android 2.2 running on it) until Windows Mobile 7 gets released.  And if it turns out I don't like Win Mobile 7, or it fizzles out because it came to the party too late, I can always go back to Android.

Any advice you can offer or information about incorrect assumptions would be appreciated.

HTC HD2 will not get any ROM upgrades to Windows Phone 7. Microsoft made this very clear @ MIX10. HD2 does not meets the min hardware requirements.

WP7 will launch on Oct 11th. Australia will launch it on 20th Oct.

Do whatever you want to do man.
