HTC Mozart and HTC Mondrian user agents confirms that Windows phone 7 is on board

Nothing really amazing here but the HTC Mozart and HTC Mondrian user agent strings confirm that both devices are running Windows Phone 7 (both User Agent are identical which could confirm that both device are actually the same but branded for different mobile operators). The mysterious LG C900 and LG E900 I posted about a while ago also shows Internet Explorer Mobile 7 as being the default browser on the devices.

Motorola Droid X shipping early

A bunch of lucky Verizon users have just received their Motorola Droid X a full week before the official street day. The situation doesn’t seem to be really widespread so don’t get your hopes if you have ordered yours not long ago.
