I know that some of our readers have been waiting for the ultimate hack which will allow a Windows Mobile smartphone to dual boot also into Android.

Unfortunately the hack is not available for existing devices, but if you are willing to spend $200 you can get a pretty good HTC Touch Diamond 2 clone with the ability to selectively boot into Android or Windows Mobile.

The so-called Double Star Dual OS T5353 has a 3.2 inch WVGA resistive screen, 5 megapixel AF camera, WIFI, GPS, GSM but no 3G ( as is near standard for China)  and is only 12 mm thick. It is powered by a 624 Mhz processor and 256 MB RAM with 512 MB storage, and also microSD expansion.

See the device doing its Android thing above, and after the break a tour of its Windows Mobile 6.5.3 environment below.
