HTC Desire HD ROM ported to numerous other HTC devices

desire

The Desire HD was only announced not long ago (it’s not even been released yet!) but over at xda, they have not only got their hands on the rom, but have managed to port it already to a multitude of other devices, including the HD2, original Desire, Evo 4G, and the Droid Incredible. Yes, we may not have the Evo 4G or the Incredible, but for frustrated WinMo users and their love-hate relationship with HD2, this could be a godsend!

As with all rom flashing, they’re not without risk, and expectedly there are features (like the camera) that aren’t working yet. Given a bit of time though and maybe the release of the Desire HD, we should see the new Sense and the full hardware feature set implemented – for now, consider it just a taster of what’s to come.

For the already excellent HTC Desire, there is more good news – the ridiculously fast boot up time as seen at the launch event in London is now possible on the Desire. Click through for the video.

HP ProBook 4525 & HP 620 Laptops Review

both There are more laptops sold these days than desktop PCs, and with fair reason – they offer the average user all they could want without the ugly beige box and monitor taking up all that space. They’re sleek and powerful, widescreen and wireless and allow you to peruse the important issues of the day’s Facebook in front of the goggle box. Yes, laptops are awesome, and there are loads to choose from. So in such a competitive area, a laptop naturally has to stand out from the crowd to get noticed – some go for raw power, giving those doing CPU intensive task the grunt they need. Others go for sleek and attractive design – thin, curved and shell-like.

So have HP given us two laptops that stand up on their raw power or stand out with their design? Well, err, um…
