HTC Hero Caught Running WP7

The HTC Hero was launched in July, 2009, and it’s still quite a popular smartphone. This is why the manufacturer decided to bring Gingerbread to the HTC Hero. But a couple of days ago the smartphone was shown running Windows Phone 7!

On April 12, American TV showed another episode of Smallville, and in one of its scenes the HTC Hero was noticed. When one of the heroines took this smartphone to call someone, the audience saw Windows Phone 7 on the gadget. What did this scene mean? Why did the movie creators decide to “kill“ Android and install a non-native operating system on the phone? I guess this case won’t remain a mystery for a long time, and we’ll hear something about it very soon.

I personally do not see any sense in this case because the company has many Windows Phone 7-powered smartphones, and HTC doesn’t need to experiment Microsoft’s platform on such an old smartphone. Anyway, if you have other guesses, it’ll be interesting to hear you.
