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.

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.
