Default [Q] Windows Phone on Asus Memopad HD7

Since the tablet is stuck at Jellybean, and theres no asus updates to KK or L, I would like to try and install windows phone to it. I read somewhere that windows was opening up and giving out thier tablet os for free. IS this possible.

1) Windows Phone is not a tablet OS. It could theoretically be adopted into one, but it is not actually one. Microsoft's tablet OS for ARM is Windows RT.
2) Windows for small tablets is free.. To OEMs. Not to normal people. In fact, you can't buy it at all; it only comes pre-installed.
3) You don't just "install" mobile OSes the way you do PC ones. They have to be customized for the devices they run on.
4) Short answer: NO
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
