The HTC HD7 Windows Phone 7 smartphone will be available exclusively to T-Mobile customers in mid-November.
The HTC HD7 for T-Mobile has now received its official unveiling, and will be available to T-Mobile customers in mid-November. Pairing rich mobile multimedia features with a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen - the largest screen available on a Windows Phone in the U.S. - the HTC HD7 promises to keep customers entertained and connected on the go.
The HTC HD7 comes equipped with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 16GB NAND flash memory for storage of applications and more, Internet Explorer 8, TeleNav GPS Navigator, as well as a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 720p HD video recording.
HTC America's President, Jason Mackenzie, says the huge, vibrant display, high quality sound and built-in kickstand makes the HTC HD7 the ultimate device to enjoy the entertainment services made possible by Windows Phone 7.
The HTC HD7 is the first phone from T-Mobile built on Windows Phone 7, and delivers an integrated experience through Windows Phone Hubs. Hubs bring together a related set of applications, services and content into a single view to simplify common tasks. Your contacts, music, games and work can be shared, synced and accessed virtually everywhere you happen to be.
In addition to Microsoft's Xbox LIVE and Zune services, the HTC HD7 will also come pre-installed with a range of third-party entertainment applications:
Netflix for streaming thousands of movies and TV shows for Netflix members to watch instantly on the HTC HD7's large screen.
T-Mobile TV offers consumers access to live and on-demand TV, including free programming from ABC News NOW, FOX Sports, PBS Kids, Azteca America, family holiday movie favorites and more.
Slacker Radio for listening to free, personalized radio with over 130 genre stations and the ability to create stations on their own.
Productivity and Family Features
In addition to the rich entertainment, the HTC HD7 also aims to keep customers connected throughout the day with a productivity experience featuring the largest virtual keyboard available on a Windows Phone in the U.S. Furthermore, the HTC HD7 includes fully integrated Microsoft Exchange e-mail and calendar as well as Office Hub, which offers customers mobile versions of popular productivity programs, including Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, OneNote and SharePoint Workspace.
The HTC HD7 is also the first device to offer T-Mobile Family Room, a new application exclusively from T-Mobile that helps families keep in touch and manage their busy lives. Customers can write a note on a virtual chalkboard and add shared calendar events for their Family Room group to coordinate get-togethers. Sharing pictures and interacting is said to be easy, with real-time notifications alerting users when any family member posts something for everyone to see.
