HTC HD7 leaks with T-Mobile branding and $199.99 price tagAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
We're less than 24 hours from Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 event, and to celebrate we've got a big WP7-related leak for you. Our friends at TmoNews have received an image of the T-Mobile-branded HTC HD7, along with a spec sheet that includes some interesting nuggets of information. As you can see, the HD7 is includes a monstrous 4.3-inch display at a resolution of 480x800, a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with dual LED flash, 576 MB of RAM, and a generous 16 GB of storage. Unfortunately, the HD7 won't be enjoying the "4G speeds" of T-Mobile's HSPA+ network, but at least you'll have the glow of the 4.3-inch screen to keep you warm at night. Pricing for the HD7 is said to be the standard $199.99 with a two-year contract.
Looking kind of like an EVO with Windows Phone 7 buttons, I'd say that the HD7 has the potential to be one of the best WP7 devices at launch and probably for a while after, too. After all, the HD2 is one of the best Windows Mobile handsets in recent memory (it's not a bad Android phone, either). My only gripe is the fact that there's no HSPA+ connectivity to be found. How many of you will stick to HSPA speeds to snag one of HTC's headlining Windows Phone 7 devices?
