HTC HD7 hands-on [Windows Phone 7 launch]

The HTC HD7 on T-Mobile marks the largest of the new Windows Phone 7 devices -- and it's quickly grabbed a spot in our top five devices launched today. Let's start with the particulars:

  • 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen.
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor at 1GHz
  • Wifi: 802.11 b/g/n
  • GPS (and Telenav)
  • Quad-band GSM/AWS 3G
  • Dimensions: 4.8 inches by 2.7 inches by 0.44 inches
  • Multimedia kickstand (that might double as a bottle opener)
  • 5MP camera with autofocus and dual LED flash
  • FM radio
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
  • 16GB internal storage
Really, it was how thin the HD7 is that struck us the most. Sure, it's big. And it's bright. And the Windows Phone 7 OS flies on it. But for all that size and power, the phone is nice and then. Surprisingly so. We'll have more on this guy coming up. In the meantime, taste some pics after the break.

This phone looks great, as do most of the WP7 phones. My least favorite is the Sprint phone and as luck would have it I am currently on Sprint. Awesome.

I loved the HD2, that being said I can't help but feel slight disappointment for the HD7. What made the HD2 so great wasn't the OS...it was the way it raised the bar leaps and bounds for what a cell phone could be in terms of hardware. I think HTC missed a chance to capitalize on that heritage.
