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.

Verizon HTC 7 Trophy snapped in the wild

What you are seeing above is first live picture of Verizon’s HTC 7 Trophy which is most probably going to be officially unveiled in the coming weeks. It has been known for a while that this new Quad-Band CDMA handset was going to be the Windows Phone 7 device that the big red company was going to launch but as of yesterday nobody had seen it publicly. Verizon has been extensively testing it prior to the OS’s launch in October and also had a couple of its branded applications appear in the Marketplace more than two months ago.

Samsung Galaxy S vs Samsung Omnia 7 vs HTC 7 Trophy Camera comparison

Here’s a three-way comparison of the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Omnia 7 and HTC 7 Trophy cameras. It’s snowing outside so I thought that this would be a really great opportunity to test the camera’s video quality (falling snow = more details to encode = worst outdoors situation possible for a digital sensor = awesome benchmark). Anyway hit the break to first check out a video comparing the Omnia 7 vs the Trophy:

Windows Phone 7 Office Mobile 2010 performance comparison

As we have seen in a previous video, the HTC 7 Trophy is a bit slower than the other devices when loading some applications and games so I decided to check out the Office Mobile 2010 loading performance on the Trophy vs the Samsung Omnia 7 and shot a video that I embedded after the break. The result here is that the HTC 7 Trophy isn’t really that much behind the Omnia 7 (never more that 1 secs slower) and this will definitely not impact the overall user experience. Check it out below:

Here are several pictures of the HTC Spark which is also apparently called the HTC Mondrian or HTC 7 Trophy.

HTC Spark / HTC 7 Trophy Windows Phone 7 Rom leaks

Let the leaks begin! The second HTC windows Phone 7 device rom has just leaked a few minutes ago and is apparently Vodafone’s HTC Spark aka HTC 7 Trophy (aka HTC Mondrian?) Rom (RUU_Spark_Vodafone_UK_1.07.161.04_Spark_5.50.09_RELEASE). As you can see in the screenshot above the device pictured looks exactly like the HTC 7 Trophy. Not much else is known about the ROM but I’m sure that XDA folks will take it apart soon enough. The first WP7 device rom that leaked was the HTC Mondrian’s back in May.

Rumored HTC 7 Trophy hardware specifications

Similar to yesterday’s HTC HD7 /HD3 specs sheet here come the HTC 7 Trophyrumored hardware spécifications. As you can se they are identical to the HTC HD7 besides the smaller 3.8″ screen and larger 1300mh battery (makes sense no….not). As it is usually the case in this type of situation, things can change between now that the official announcement in the coming days.

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.

HTC Mondrian, HTC Shubert , HTC Spark and HTC Gold Windows Phone 7 handsets

According to Conflipper the 4 Windows Phone 7 handsets are headed to North America this fall. But are they all the same? HTC usually uses different code names for the same hardware just to differentiate them between carrier versions (but it looks like 2 different handsets are going to Telus…). The HTC Mondrian and HTC Schubert are going to Telus, the HTC Spark_W is going to bell and Verizon and the HTC Gold_W is going to Sprint. Finally he claims that the long rumored HTC Scorpion aka HTC Olympian Android tablet is headed to Bell and Verizon.
