HTC HD7S

The HTC HD7S will be coming to AT&T in the "coming weeks." The Windows Phone 7 smartphone is largely like the HTC HD7 for T-Mobile. Pricing has not been announced yet.

Super LCD

One difference between the HD7 and HD7S is that the latter now has a 4.3-inch Super LCD screen. This is a slight improvement over the HD7's display, and we certainly noticed it was sharper and brighter.

Camera

On back, you'll find a 5-megapixel camera and dual-LED flash. There's a soft-touch finish on back, and overall, we found the construction of the phone to be very solid.

Kickstand

The HD7S has a built-in kickstand, so you can prop the phone on a desk and watch videos, listen to music, view slideshows, and so forth.

Wide but thin

Though the HTC HD7S is a large smartphone due to the 4.3-inch screen, it's still pretty thin, so it's not too cumbersome.

The bottom of the device features a 3.5mm headphone jack and a Micro-USB port.

Keyboard

Despite looking small, we've always found the onscreen keyboard on Windows Phone 7 devices easy to use.
