I guess you haven't used the search button much.....

No you can't install windows 7,5 mango on your HTC sensation, as it ins't a public source, but you can install the launcher called "launcher 7" which makes your Sensation look like windows phone.

Short answer: No.
Longer answer: You can't because it's closed source, has completely different drivers,...

the only reason why it worked on the hd2 was because the hardware was very simillar to the hd7. therefore the drivers neede to run on the hd2 were already written. as for our sensation there is no drivers at all written to make windows mobile 7 to work. unless drivers are written or another phone poops up with the same exact specification as our sensation than it will work.

it takes to much time to write the drivers for it to work and i dont think any of the devs will take their time to do it. just my 2cents

Actually, i'd love to see that happen.

WP is something to look out for for anyone who is seeking integration of things. SkyDrive, hotmail, windows. Google services are still too independat from each other. Tell me, who needs messenger(huddle) on android if gtalk can be for it? There is too much segretation withing google itself, i do have a feeling that microsoft might do it quite a lot better.

I use launcher 7 and I like it a lot. It won't give you the full experience but it will fool people at a glance.

I really don't want to se Wp7/8 on the sensation.
With all the problems with MS Windows, i can't imagine how ****ed up the mobile OS will be.
