Cool windows phone 7 Os on SGS2

Hi

There are rumours floating around that Samsung is in the process of putting wp7 on SGS2 ( maybe a variant of it)

So was wondering if they did bring out one would it be possible to port wp7 onto out SGS2 sinse it would be the same hardware.

I would like to dual boot if possible( like the HTC HD2 ).. what do you guys think ?

I've tried WP7 on both native and non-native devices and believe me, it works better on native devices, just like Android does.

Besides, it's fugly and too new to be even considered as an alternative to Android. Also, if it's a non-native device then you could have issues with registering it to its full capabilities.

And finally, I don't believe a word of that article. Sounds to me like someone's come out from under a bridge, looking for snacks.

* DANG DoUBLE POST * Didnt see the other post#

ANyways

I kinda like WP7 as I have HTC HD7 and I just love the facebook , twitter and email on my HD7, I still think android is not that good for emails

The only reason I love android more is cause of the apps, and googlemaps and the great old flash junkie in me which make me want android.

But yeah If some DEV does port it, it would be great ......

Oh I might be a happy bunny once I install mango as it seems to iron out some of the few problems currently WP7 user's have

I'd be interested in doing this. I would like to get on the development scene... Funny, I was thinking this the other day!

First, I have to build a basic C# app... Damn you High-School for taking my time!

Since I tried out Launcher 7 as my launcher and UberMusic as my music player, I've been very interested in having a proper WindowsPhone. If the clones are this good, how good should the original OS be?

It's looking very likely that I will be owning a WP7 device, if they open up the system. If I have to jailbreak to get basic things done like on iPhone, it's not even an option.

I actually have a HTC HD7 and windows phone 7 is really good but cause its new is still few things to iron out and not much apps.

I will actually go for Nokia windows phone 7 are out as Nokia does the best hardware and I kinda love WP7 as well

Are you getting an ID-10-T error when you try to do that?
