So you're one of those people who not only can't get enough hacking of your out of the box devices, but you can't wait to get the official hacks as well!

Windows Phone 7 Launcher On Android

The good people over at the xda-developers not only have developed WP7  themes for Android, but also a new launcher from XDA forum member seraph1024. Perfect for those that like the looks of WP7, but want their Android fix. It seems that it does not work with stock Samsung phones. However, I got the app to work on a rooted Samsung Galaxy S. Just go to the Android Market and search for "Windows Phone Android Lite". There is a paid version too, if you would like to tip your hat to the developer, but as of right now, the applications are exactly the same. Check out a list of features after the break.

Lite version include:

  • Pin to front page tiles
  • remove from front page
  • uninstall apps
  • dark and lite themes
  • 4 accent colors (Blue, Green, Red and Orange)
  • limited system messages
