HTC Shift gets Windows 8 Installed

The guys at XDA Developers have managed to get Windows 8 on to the HTC Shift. The Windows 8 version is the latest developers preview and as far as we can tell, most things (if not all) seem to work rather well on it.

Basic driver support is included in the package as well as touchscreen support. If you are interested in getting Windows 8 on to the old device then check out the instructions found here.

A video is also below to show you what it runs like on the older HTC Hardware. This is obviously unsupported as Microsoft Windows 8 is still in a developer preview mode and the HTC Hardware is quite old by todays standards, but for those who have a device laying around at home that isn’t being used then test this for yourself if you so wish.
