Default Captivate Windows Phone

Hi Y'all, Just bricked hard bricked my captivate, so its off to become unbrickable, so it got me thinking, who here would put in some cash to buy a cappy and get it unbrickabled for a Dev to port windows phone to the cappy? Maybe try and get featured on the XDA home page.

Anyhoo just an idea (:

Windows Phone 7 is closed source. The reason why it's good is also the reason you won't get it.

Also you can get a Samsung Focus (Captivate running WP7) off contract for under $250.

You can also get a copy of it for like $75, to develop with

If you don't read the forum, why should the forum read you?

Focus got Mango long ago. At least the v1.3 did, which luckily I have. I switch between it and my Captivate so neither if them get to old to quick.

I think WP on Captivate is impossible, due to it Chipset and GPU.

I personally think porting win mobile would be a complete loss for the captivate. i thought the whole idea of the android operating system is about freedon and doesnt win mobile pratically take that from you? please dont flame i have never used windows mobile except on my old pantech duo and my old blackjack.
