If there’s one thing I’ve learned since I started covering modern smartphone operating systems, it’s that someone out there is trying to get every single one to run on the HTC HD2. While the phone ships with Windows Mobile 6.5, we seen users figure out how to install Windows Phone 7, Google Android, and even Ubuntu 10.10. Now it looks like we can add MeeGo Linux to that list.
Developer Steven Toughton-Smith has managed to get MeeGo working on the HD2. The project is still a work in progress, but the operating system loads and applications run. The touchscreen and WiFi are both working, although not perfectly at the moment.
