Nexus One runs Windows 3.11, possibly the saddest thing we've seen all day (video)

In a volatile Android ecosystem where biggerand betterphones pop up every week, your Nexus One might be feeling a little obsolete. Frankly, there’s hardly a better way to cheer it up than by installing an operating system that’s a little more its speed. In the finest DOSBox tradition, one gentleman recently imbued his Googlephone with Windows 3.11, by far our favorite 1993 Microsoft OS. Realizing the futility of getting it to doanything — ah, memories — he set about crafting a step-by-step guide for you to do the same. If you care to give his misery company, you’ll find instructions at our source link; if not, don your rose-tinted glasses and peep the video after the break.

Android Port for HTC HD2 Coming Soon

We have previouslyseen different Windows phones like HTC Touch Pro2, Touch HD and Touch Diamond2 running Android OS through an emulation software named Haret. For different reasons, developers so far have not been able to do the same for HTC HD2which by far is the most superior Windows phone available today.hd2 androidAnd now, a major breakthrough has been made over at XDA. The genius have managed to get the Linux bootloader up and running on the HD2 which has enabled them to play a 720p high-def video on the device. This marks a really important step in the Android port for the HD2. Hopefully in the not so distant future, we’ll see HD2 running a fully functional version of Android, just like the one for iPhone 2Gand iPhone 3G. We’ll keep you posted on this one. Check out the video yourself of the HD2 running a 720p video on top of the Linux bootloader.If the port is successful, it wont be wrong to call HD2 a variantof EVO 4G(without 4G capabilities) do you think it would be fine to call the HD2 a liteversion of the EVO 4G(without 4G) since most of the hardware specs are same on the HTC EVO 4G, except that it runs Android 2.1 instead of Windows Mobile 6.5.

IntensaFIRE click-on mod bringing programmable / rapid fire modes to PS3 controller

Xbox 360 gamers may have had a solid year head start, but PlayStation 3 loyalists will soon be able to join the programmable / rapid fire party, too. BGRMods has announced that its much-hyped IntensaFIRE controller mod is finally coming to Sony’s latest console, bringing with it fewer installation steps and an equal amount of tinkering possibilities. This new board requires no glue and no solder; users simply “click” it into place and enjoy the spoils of having rapid-fire potential at their fingertips. Purportedly, the mod is useful in “all PlayStation games,” and it’ll begin shipping out on May 21st for those who just can’t game without a macro. We’re told that the $69.95 device will also be making its public debut at E3, so you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be hitting the show floor in hopes of snagging a bit of hands-on time come June.

Leaked Windows Phone 7 ROM filename suggests an HTC Mondrian?

The lads and lassies at XDA-Developers made an intriguing discovery this week: a leaked 100MB file that might be the first Windows Phone 7 ROM actually destined for a device. What’s more, it could possibly reveal details about a phone we barely knew existed — the filename references an “HTC Mondrian.” At best, the contents might reveal wonders beyond imagination, including full specs, bundled apps, even the tools needed to properly shoehorn WP7 onto your existing HTC handset. At worst, the community might never open the blasted file, or discover it’s all a clever hoax. There’s really no indication either way, so we prefer to dream. If you think you’ve got what it takes, try cracking the ROM yourself (registration required) at our source link.
