Two couple of months ago, Microsoft announced that the next version of Windows Phone, codenamed 'Mango', had been finalized, yet no devices running earlier versions of the system have officially obtained 'Mango'. Thankfully, official HTC ROMs have been leaked and made their way onto the Internet, enabling users of the HTC HD7 to run 'Mango' right now, one day after a similar ROM file was leaked for the HTC 7 Mozart.
Today, we are seeing the first effects of the release of DFT’s RSPL/HSPL tool: a WP7 developer over at XDA has cooked the first ever custom ROM for the HTC HD7!
The day has come, dear readers! Microsoft, at their Windows Phone 7 launch event, has officially announced all the things we’ve wanted to know about WP7 since its original public unveiling in Barcelona.

Folks at WMPoweruser have unearthed a schematic image of HTC’s enthusiastically anticipated HD7 (release date confirmed with price). HTC HD7 is the true successor of the Windows Mobile 6.5-based HD2.
