HTC HD7 and HTC 7 Trophy NoDo Roms available

Following the leak of the HTC 7 Mozart NoDo ROM last night the same russian guy also leaked the HTC HD7 and HTC 7 Trophy NoDo ROM today. These are most probably the official thing with the final 7389 NoDo build so if you don’t care about your warranty just go ahead and flash your device and start copy/pasting all night long.

HTC HD7 Hands-on preview

This is the phone that everybody’s been waiting for and sure enough the HTC HD7 looks sexy as hell. On the hardware side there’s nothing new at all. This is basically an HTC HD2 with a new body and Windows Pone 7 installed on it. You have the same Qualcomm QSD8250 chipset clocked at 1Ghz, same 4.3″ TFT LCD screen (there’s no SLCD of this size yet), same camera etc.. THe device does feel a tiny bit lighter than it’s older brother but I don’t know for sure because several prototype models were on display (some were labeled HD3 other HD7 and other nothing) and they all had different weight. What’s new here is the Windows Phone 7 OS and the new Dolby Mobile and SRS Surround sound feature enabled by a TI chip (similar to the Desire HD, HTC 7 Trophy and HTC 7 Mozart). As you can see in the video below HTC’s WP7 devices will all feature the HTC HUB which will enable users to have access to an HTC section of the Marketplace and download HTC applications like the Stocks, Weather, Notes, Sound Equalizer etc. The most interesting thing about the HD7 is how fast and smooth it is compared to the similar speced HD2 (the US version of the HTC HD7 will have 16GB of internal storage compare to 8Gb in Europe). Software and good drivers make all the difference here. Video after the break (my hand was touching the bottom of the screen that’s why I was having a hard time when panning ;) :

The HTC HD7 is certified for launch

The HTC HD7 Windows Phone 7 handset that we are all expecting to see  in its official form tomorrow has received its global certification and should be ready for primetime later this months. Nearly all of the WP7 devices that we know about have been certified in the past few weeks. The only one that is missing is the mysterious Asus E600 that is apparently only going to be launched in early 2011. There are, as far as I know, only three device partners scheduled to launch Windows Phone 7 based devices this fall: LG, Samsung and HTC (that’s a total of 8 devices).

T-Mobile HTC Schubert / HTC HD7 pictures revealed

Here’s what looks like the T-Mobile’s HTC Schubert aka HTC HD7/ HD3 which is supposedly launching on November 17th in the US. You will notice that the device features a slightly different design compared to the other shots with have seen before (this one seems to have a speaker grill under the three capacitive buttons at the bottom of the device). This version of the device will apparently also feature 16GB of internal storage (compared to 8GB on the European version).

HTC HD7 / HD3 Rom and HTC Mozart Rom leaked

If you have followed closely the latest HTC HD7 leaks you probably know by now that the HTC HD7 / HD3 is the one and only HTC Schubert that we have been hearing about all along. The O2 branded ROM of the device has now been leaked by the good folks in China and is ready to be played with. Included in the Rom is the HTC Hub, HTC Photo Enhancer, HTC Connection Setup, HTC Converter, HTC Stocks and Sound Enhancer (I wonder why were the HTC Flashlight and HTC Notes  are gone..).

HTC HD7 to be released on October 18th ?

The mysterious HTC HD7 is apparently going to hit the European market on October 18th if the O2 document pictured above turns out to be true. The device will go on sale for €599 without any strings attached or €79 with a 2 year contract (on Germany’s O2 network). We still don’t have any info on the HTC HD7 hardware but my guess is that it will either be the HTC T8788 (also rumored to be called the HTC Surround) or maybe the official name of the HTC Schubert / Mozart.

HTC Sense Hub shown on HTC Schubert device

It’s leaking folks! Here’s a video of the previously shown HTC Hub customization running on an actual device (which looks like the HTC Schubert / Mozart). I personally don’t really like what HTC has done in terms of UI design. It doesn’t seems to follow the guidelines at all. What do you guys think? Video after the break:

Samsung Cetus, Samsung Focus, HTC Surround and 3 other Windows Phone 7 devices hitting AT&T this fall

According to Engadget’s sources AT&T is expected to launch 6 Windows Phone 7 handsets this fall. The Samsung Cetus i917 which we already heard about, the Samsung Focus which I guess is the Samsung i8700 we saw lately, the HTC Surround which may be the HTC T8788 and 3 other device. If I had to guess I would say that the LG E900 and LG C900 are 2 of the unnamed devices and probably an other HTC handset (the HTC Schubert which has been spotted on ATT’s network ) but there’s no sign of the Dell Lightning.This should come as a surprise to anyone after the statement that AT&T will be the lead Windows Phone 7 launch partner in the US. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is also headed to the carrier’s roster.

More blurry pictures of the HTC Mozart

Xmoo has posted a few more extremely blurry pictures of the HTC Mozart  Windows Phone 7 handset in the last few days. Nothing to really get excitided about given that everything you see here can bee seen in better quality in the HTC Schubert video posted last week.

HTC Mozart Windows Phone 7 device live pictures leaked

Xmoo over on Twitter has just posted a couple of live pictures of the HTC Mozart Windows Phone 7 which looks identical to the HTC Schubert just like I had guessed. As you can see in the pictures above the device does have an aluminium uni-body and can be opened to slide the sim card and battery in. The camera Flash definitely looks like it’s a Xenon too. Don’t forget to check out the video of the HTC Schubert here.

HTC Schubert Windows Phone 7 handset shown in video

Look at what we’ve got here: The first live video of the HTC Schubert Windows Phone 7 device and it looks kinda sexy in my opinion. The device seems to have a aluminium uny-body like the HTC legend and looks really similar to the one we have seen previously in the leaked shots (and this sort of confirms what I already though: the HTC Schubert, Gold, Mozart.. are the same devices for defferent carriers and with slightly diffrent design). The camera and flash look interesting as it seems like both are different from what we currently have on HTC handsets (Xenon flash, better lens?) The HTC Schubert is apparently scheduled to launch on T-Mobile US on November 17th (and earlier in EU) Hit the break to check the video:

First HTC Windows Phone 7 handset passes the FCC

Looks like today is the Windows Phone 7 devices “certification and leak” day. After the Asus handset spotted in Pakistan, the Samsung Cetus FCC certification, here come the first Windows Phone 7 device from HTC passing the FCC test. Unfortunately there isn’t much info about it in the filling other than the fact that the model number is PD26100, has BT, Wifi n  and supports the GSM 850 / UMTS I/II bands. Could the be the device we saw a few days ago? HTC Mozart, Mondrian, Schubert, Gold? We can only guess. But remember that another mysterious HTC device hit the FCC back in March and is supposed to go live on Sept 15th. Interestingly HTC has an event scheduled on September 14th, but this will probably only be for Android phones. Stay tuned…

First HTC Windows Phone 7 device shot in the wild

Well well…here are the first live shots of what appears to be HTC’s first Windows Phone 7 handset. Is it the HTC Mondrian, Mozart, Schubert….? Only time will tell but according to the tipster it packs a 1ghz SnapDragon chipset (so it probably isn’t the Mondrian which, according to its leaked rom, has a Qualcomm QSD8650A/B clocked 1.3ghz) a 3.7″ S-LCD screen, three capacitive touch buttons at the bottom and an 8Mpix camera on the back. Based on the picture HUB seen above the WP7 build seems to be really old (microsoft has seen changed the sample pictures found in the hub).

HTC Mozart Windows Phone 7 phone headed to T-Mobile?

So is it the HTC Mozart, HTC Schubert or are they both the same device like I’ve always thought? According to TMONews’ sources the HTC Mozart Windows Phone 7 handset is headed to T-Mobile US this fall. We first heard about this device a few weeks ago when it appeared in an internal Telstra document and we also found out its user agant string on HTC’s server just a few days ago.Now what is interesting here is that the leaked T-Mobile roadmap that popped up 2 days ago only mentions the HTC Schubert WP7 device. So are they both the same phone (like the HTC Mondrian, HTC Gold and HTC Spark…)?

HTC talks Windows Phone 7

PocketLint had the chance to chat with HTC‘s PR Eric Lin about the company’s Windows Phone 7 plans last week during Qualcomm’s UpLinq event in Sand Diego. Unfortunately nothing really new came out of it and it definitely looks (IMO) like HTC is kinda out of the loop when it come to WP7 development compared to Samsung and LG. As I’ve said many times before the OEM that has the most to loose with Microsoft’s new mobile OS is HTC because of the customization restrictions. Check some quotes after the break:

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.

HTC Schubert Windows Phone 7 handset launching November 17th on T-Mobile

After yesterday’s rumored HTC Gold UK launch date comes the HTC Schubert which will supposedly launch on T-Mobile US on November 17th according to a leaked roadmap. As I said yesterday, the HTC Schubert is probably the same device as the HTC Mondrian, Gold, Mozart etc… Interestingly it also looks like LG may have its LG Panther / GW910 Windows Phone 7 handset out around the same time as you can see in the leaked roadmap pictured above where there is non-Android LG handset launching in November to…

HTC Gold Windows Phone 7 phone rumored to launch in Europe this November

HTC Mondrian mock up extracted from ROM

File this under the rumor category: According to online retailer Omio the HTC Gold Windows Phone 7 handset we heard about a few weeks ago is scheduled to launch in November in the UK. One thing to remember is that  HTC’s CEO Peter Chou revealed a little while ago that only one HTC Windows Phone 7 was planned for 2010. so you shouldn’t be surprised if the HTC Gold is the same device as the HTC Mondrian, HTC Schubert, HTC Mozart and HTC Spark. The company has the habit of giving one handset a different codename depending on the mobile operator and country.
