Officially speaking, HTC’s HD2 will not be getting a Windows Phone 7 upgrade. All because it doesn’t comply with WP7’s hardware specifications. And what hardware specs, you might ask? Not having three buttons! Yes, HD2 won’t get WP7 all because it has two extra buttons despite the fact that it meets all other specifications.

PocketNow has picked up a seemingly working WP7 port to HTC HD2. Developed by Cotulla, the video embedded below shows the HD2 allegedly booting into WP7. This does look real-er than the previous ports but Cotulla says that it is just a DFT team test and he doesn’t want you to pester him with questions about release date. He does, however, say that the future will show all.
The WP7 port for HD2 will inevitably come. We’ll just have to wait for the developers community to come up with something so that people can keep on enjoying the phone that ended Windows Mobile OS on a high note.
