Just a few days ago, I wrote this article talking about what a good job HTC did with the HD2. One of the commenter’s called Bug Blatter left a note talking about how awesome Android ran on his device is. After following the link he left in the comment, I found myself running Android on my device regularly.

I have been using it for just about three days now, and wow is it smooth. The porters did a great job, and after a couple of day I can say I am enjoying the time I have with Android. The main reason I like it so much is because I have been addictively playing Need For Speed Shift XboxMobile phoneSecret telling smile ever since I got Android going. The game is very interesting and I am sad Windows Mobile does not have it. Other things that rocks about having my HD2 run Android is the amount of apps I found in the app store, and the speed test app that I can finally use to determine my networks connection.

I am now back on the Windows Mobile side, but I will return tonight to Android just to play a little game and I will return with the comfort knowing all my settings are the same.


One thing about all this. My HD2 was recorded better than just about ever other available Android device. Talk about a moment of happiness. So if any Android owner talks about their phone being faster than mine, ill say… “hay, read the stats, I win”.

Try it out for you HD2


P.S Please Do Not leave comments like “Why would I want that on my device”, if you do not want it, do not try it. I am sure many others like trying new things and being level headed.
