HTC launched a trio of smart phones running Windows Phone 7 yesterday, delving deep into its velvet bag of random names. The HD7 is the big daddy of the family, but the smaller HTC 7 Trophy and HTC 7 Mozart aren't to be sniffed at either, so cop an eyeful of them in our photo gallery.
The Trophy (above) is slightly larger than the Mozart, packing a 3.8-inch touchscreen, compared to the latter's 3.7-inch display. The Trophy's screen is smaller than the HD7's 4.3-incher, though.
The Trophy and HD7 are outdone by the Mozart on the camera front. The Trophy offers a 5-megapixel snapper with a single LED light, compared to the Mozart's 8-megapixel camera and its xenon flash. Like the Trophy, the HD7 is packing 5 megapixels, but it offers two LED lights instead of the Trophy's one.
Other than screen size and camera specs, there are few significant differences between the handsets. They all sport 1GHz processors, for example, plus 8GB of built-in memory, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, and largely unmodified versions of Windows Phone 7.
If you're considering shelling out for one of HTC's Windows Phone 7 handsets, the main factors you'll have to consider are: which network is most practical for you, how much you can afford to spend, and whether your pockets can accommodate these phones' girth without bursting at the seams.
The Trophy will be available exclusively from Vodafone, for free on a two-year, £25 per month contract. The Mozart will be exclusive to Orange, available for free on a two-year, £35 per month contract. If you want the HD7, you'll have to supply O2 with £40 every month for two years, although the phone will come free. All the mobiles will be available on 21 October.
We'll have reviews posted of these phones just as soon as our typewriters have been lubricated and our army of monkeys fed. In the meantime, you can check out our previews of the HD7, Trophy and Mozart. If that's not enough Windows Phone 7 for you, you might also like to peruse our Samsung Omnia 7, LG Optimus 7 and Dell Venue Pro previews.
