Submitted by lalit on November 10, 2010 - 11:45am.

HTC HD7 is the first Windows Phone 7 available on T-Mobile in US. The phone comes with 4.3-inch (480 x 800) touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, 1GHz processor, 16GB storage, WiFi, Bluetooth and A-GPS. It measures 4.8” x 2.68” x 0.44” and weighs 5.71 ounces, offering up to 5.33 hours of battery life with 320 hours standby. The Phone is available for $199 with two-year contract on T-Mobile, but can be bought on Amazon for just $149 with contract.

Like the other HTC Windows Phone 7 handset HTC Surround, this handset also didn’t receive much praise from reviewers. Matt Buchanan of Gizmodo concluded his review by saying “This could be a much better phone than it is, the Windows Phone to get, simply by flawlessly delivering on technical excellence. But its headline feature—the neverending display—is compromised by being less-than-stellar in other respects. And, like my ex-girlfriend told me until she dumped me, size ain't everything. Overall, the HD7 is not a bad phone, and it's a perfect serviceable vehicle for Windows Phone 7. It's just not a great phone.”

Overall, if you are planning to buy a Windows Phone 7 based device, Samsung Focus is still the best choice you have in US. Below we have added links to 6 best reviews of HTC HD7 available online:
