I am encouraging our devs to develop a WP7 rom for our beloved Galaxy Ace, because our Ace can hold WP7, judging the specifications given by Nokia's new Lumia 610, which sports same tech specs with Ace.

some of us would love to have WP7 on our galaxy ace, can we do that?

(I am no programmer, but at least, can I start an initiative?)

Not possible. Even if someone would manage to overcome all the driver problems because of the different hardware, there is one important difference: the screen resolution. The only resolution supported by WP7.5 is WVGA (800*480)- will change with WP8, but who would invest such an extreme amount of work and time for the Ace then - and the Ace just has HVGA (320*480).

Why would you need WP7 on Android?? Android has got more features than any other OS around. Also WP7 is closed source.

Let me explain it to you very clearly.

Galaxy Ace has an 800MHz ARM11 MSM7225 processor which sucks so bad.
Lumia 610 has a 800MHz Cortex A8 MSM7230 processor which is quantum leaps better than the Ace.

Secondly, Galaxy Ace has a pathetic resolution of 320x480 while all WP75 phones currently has 480x800.

Thirdly, don't expect it to end up like HD2 because HD7 & HD2 has the exact same hardware that's why it was easier to port.

WP7 is closed source so it's nearly impossible to port WP7 unless there is a similar hardware to Ace running WP7.

So, I hope you understand the gravity of your request is simply impossible to achieve. :rolleyes:
