No, it was not a WP device. It was a WM device (Windows Mobile). Remember how WM was discontinued and they started making Windows Phone from scratch? They were in fact testing the very early builds of Windows Phone 7 on our beloved Leo, and that's why it became easier to port it over. Someone in China leaked the beta drivers from Microsoft.
Android was another talk - it's open source so you don't need to search for proprietary drivers. But Cotulla still did a great job developing the bootloader, I just can't imagine how many problems he faced...
