No doubt about it the HTC HD2 is pretty darn beautiful device. With the exception of the OS that it came pre-loaded with. Developers have been hacking Android onto the device for quite some time now. Problem with that though is previously, users had to boot to Windows Mobile and then into Android, not ideal by any means.

Now with the release of a new ROM anyone wanting to load Android up on their HTC HD2 can do so by flashing right to the NAND memory and booting directly into Android bypassing Windows Mobile altogether. Granted, the process is still a little bit for the more advanced users out there but hey, if you got an HD2 kicking around that you want to make use of, give it a go. Hit the break for a video of the install process in action. [HDBlog via XDA]

That is a beautiful looking device. HTC FTW!

I believe that's just a random render of a windows mobile device...not an actual phone since windows mobile is dead
