T-Mobile officially confirms that the G2 / HTC Desire Z has an MSM7x30 clocked @ 800Mhz

Contrary to yesterday’s bogus specifications T-mobile has now officially confirmed that the T-mobile G2 aka HTC Desire Z features the new Qualcomm MSM7x30 chipset clocked at 800Mhz (with the new Adreno 205 GPU inside). As I said a few days ago, it will be intesrting to see if HTC uses this SoC or if it will stick with the more convetional QSD8x50 (or even jumped directly to the QSD8x50A) for it’s first batch of Windows Phone 7 devices.

Windows Phone 7 voice recognition coming to non-english countries only in Spring 2011

Something the majority doesn’t really know is that Windows Phone 7′s voice recognition features are currenly only available if you live in an English speaking country.If you device is located in Germany, France, Spain etc the feature will automatically be disable by the OS without any user interaction. But the semi-good news is that this may be fixed in Spring 2011. According to eurogamer the Kinect’s Voice Recognition, which is AFAIK also based on the Tellme infrastructure like WP7, will be enabled in non-english countries in Spring 2011.Sso I’m assuming that Windows Phone 7 will receive the same treatment. WP7 also only natively supports  5 languages and the lastest we heard on that matter was that additional countries should be addded around spring 2011 too.

HTC 7 Trophy Windows Phone 7 handset approved

One more Windows Phone 7 HTC handset has been partially revealed after its certification. This time it’s the HTC 7 Trophy which was certified yesterday. The fact that it has a 7 in its name makes yesterday’s HTC HD7 rumor a bit more believable. What’s interesting here is that the original HTC Trophy was a blackberry like candybar smartphone so this mysterious HTC handset is probably HTC’s first WP7 featuring a hardware keyboard.

All the pieces are falling in place and ready for the Windows Phone 7 launch in a few weeks. The last WP7 phone to hit the FCC is the LG E900 aka Optimus 7 which we have seen several times since last week. The device is apparently AT&T bound and should find itself in the carriers retail stores next to the LG C900 and other WP7 handsets like the HTC T8788. The LG E720 Android handset has also passed the certification today.
