Official HTC Mozart localized for Russian goes on sale?

Well this is interesting and we can't verify 100% at the moment, but we're told this is from the official HTC developer site for Russia (official HTC site is this: http://www.htc.com/ru/) and they're clearly showing off a Mozart for sale. No biggy there, but the fact that is says in red "UNIT HAS RUSSIAN LOCALIZATION" is of interest since as of now, Windows Phone doesn't have Russian. Heck, even the 7720 build of Mango doesn't have Russian on it, which means if this is legit it's certainly an HTC-OEM thing. You can evidently order it for 19,990 Russian rubles or about $690.

So does this actually have Russian language support? Does it run Mango? Maybe and it must.  Someone should pony up and we can all find out. Hey, if Japan can get the IS12T now, why not Russia? And perhaps, just perhaps that HTC announcement later today will shed some light on this sudden change. Stay tuned...

I think Mango supports Russian localisation (all new officially supported regions get localisation) - but you cannot get it until OEM and/or carrier decides to include it on device (same with pre-Mango WP7).For example I have unlocked Omnia 7 with German / English UK / English US / Spanish / French / Italian and HD7 from O2 with English / German / Spanish only. That's because O2 choice only those three localisations to be available.

Exactly. Was trying to imply that in the post ;-) So this makes sense for HTC to be officially pushing it. Perhaps they just pulled the trigger early...

Actually, Mango supports Russian fully, and you can get it on any phone by tweaking the available languages key in the registry. Also, there's no confirmation on this htc-developer.ru site that it's an official HTC owned, operated or even contracted property. So take this with a grain of salt. In essence these could be handsets with developer builds of Mango.
