While it may be getting on for a year old now, we've still got a soft-spot for HTC's Touch HD, so it's nice to see the homebrew ROM community endevoring to bring the latest software to the smartphone. XDA Developers forum member Miri has put together a combination ROM of Windows Mobile 6.5 and the new TouchFLO 3D 2.6 build fresh from pre-production HTC Leo handsets, and you can see it demonstrated after the cut.

The HTC Leo has made another appearance, this time courtesy of ai.rs, and the spec sheet for this Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone continues to grow in detail. The 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen handset runs at WVGA resolution and packs Qualcomm’s MSM8250 Snapdragon 1GHz chipset, together with a 5-megapixel autofocus camera and dual-LED flash.
It may seem that HTC gets a large slice of the pie when it comes to mobile phone news and rumors, and maybe that's not too far from the truth. But when you have this many phones coming out, from all sorts of networks and operating systems, then it's hard to ignore. Here's the HTC Leo having another go around the internet, but this time it's looking a little different.
A new render of what's tipped to be the HTC Leo (aka the Firestone) has emerged, said to be the company's Windows Mobile 6.5 successor to the HTC Touch HD. According to the unnamed source of the image, the smartphone will have an externally-accessible microSD card slot and large speakers on both the front and back for audio use.
Details of an upcoming HTC Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone, the HTC Leo, have leaked, and if you thought the Toshiba TG01 had a big display then prepare for even more surprise. Like the TG01, the Leo is based on Qualcomm's MSM8250 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, only with a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen.
