Design

HTC has always made solid hardware, and the Surround is no exception. The phone features a 3.8-inch touch screen and has a slim profile while still feeling very solid in the hand.

Surround-sound speakers

What's unique about the HTC Surround is that it features slide-out Yamaha speakers with surround sound.

Internet Explorer 8

Windows Phone 7 brings a much improved mobile browsing experience with Internet Explorer 8. Though we found it rather slow during our technical preview, the Surround did a pretty decent job of loading CNET's full Web site.
