It seemed so powerful back in the day. Only two years have passed since HTC's HD2 came along with its meaty 1GHz processor and high-end specs.
It also featured Windows Mobile 6.5, however - the OS Microsoft felt was better off being scrapped completely than fixed. But having already succeeded in porting the HD2 over to Android Gingerbread in the past, some kind-hearted devs have now found a way bring Android Ice Cream Sandwich to the ageing handset too.
As with all of these things, it's not a fully working version of Android 4.0, and a good many features don't work as they should, though that's largely down to hardware limitations, given that the HD2 was never built to run the kind of features ICS supports.
Other modded builds we've seen on newer handsets have run into the same kind of functionality shortcomings too, but all the same it is exciting to see that what is now considered an 'old' handset can punch so much above its weight.
There's a video of it running here but be warned - the music that accompanies it is terrible!
Personally, we'd say that although it's nice, why would you want to run ICS on an HD2 properly anyway? Unless you're particularly attached to the device, there are far better handsets available these days. And if you got it on contract, surely your two years is about up now anyway?
