This is probably the most epic event we’ve seen so far by Microsoft ! To celebrate the RTM (Release to Manufacturing) milestone of Windows Phone 7, Microsoft today arranged a special event to mark the funeral of both Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s BlackBerry. The event took place outside Microsoft’s Redmond campus last week, with employees dressed up in weird dresses, with the hearses of iPhone and BlackBerry.
Microsoft has just premiered their first ad for the upcoming Windows Phone 7 platform. This teaser ad features Lawrence of Arabia theme and promises a lot of great things to come. According to the ad, “the revolution is coming”. Check out the video for yourself after the break.
Microsoft has just announced launch titles for games which are going to be available this fall on Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone 7.

The first real Windows Phone 7 device from HTC has been spotted running a developer version of Windows Phone 7. The device in question boasts specs and a form factor which resembles that of HTC Desire (an Android phone).
We all thought that the HTC HD3 might be HTC’s first ever Windows Phone 7 handset, but it seems like all that is going to change.

Remember when we informed you last time about Android port which was in works for HTC HD2? Well guess what? Just like the Android port for iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G, it is now a reality on HD2 too, with Android 2.1 dual booting side by side with Ubuntu Linux “'Karmic Koala”, and Windows Mobile 6.5 with HTC Sense. Check out the video after the break.
We have previously seen different Windows phones like HTC Touch Pro2, Touch HD and Touch Diamond2 running Android OS through an emulation software named Haret.

The first American 4G phone, the HTC EVO 4G will hit the shelves on 4th of June for US $199 on a two year contract with Sprint. Since both the HTC HD2 and HTC EVO 4G shares almost same specs (hardware wise), the comparison between the two is evitable. One runs on Windows Mobile 6.5 (HTC HD2) while the other runs on Android 2.1 with HTC Sense (EVO 4G).
