When the new Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating system was unveiled, a selection of smartphones was released to showcase the new software. Amongst these was the HTC HD7. This great looking smartphone boasts a wealth of multimedia features and impressive hardware making it a force to be reckoned with in an increasingly competitive smartphone market.
The handset measures 122x 68x 11.2 millimetres whilst weighing in at a relatively lightweight 162 g. The front of the handset is dominated by the huge 4.3 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen which boasts a pixel setup of 480x 800, within which up to 16M individual colours are displayed. Accelerometer and proximity sensors are provided as standard, whilst there is also a kickstand on the back of the phone which can be used to stand the phone in a landscape position on a flat surface so users can keep their hands free whilst watching videos or slideshows on the screen.
A generous 8 GB of internal storage capacity is provided as standard, eliminating the need for expandable storage such as a microSD slot. This level of storage means that users can easily store a digital music collection or a large number of video files etc. within the phone. Vibration and ringing are used to alert users to incoming calls and messages, whilst there is also the added bonus of MP3 and WAV ringtone support meaning users can assign the song of their choice as the ringtone.
In order to provide the HTC HD7 with the optimum levels of connectivity to the appropriate cellular networks, class 32 versions of both GPRS and EDGE are provided. The handset utilises 3G coverage for its initial means of internet connectivity whereby an HSDPA connection provides download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps. Wi-Fi connectivity is also included meaning users can enjoy an enhanced browsing experience whenever they have the appropriate access to local wireless networks.
The HTC HD7 is a highly competent cameraphone, boasting a 5 mega pixel unit which comes with auto-focus and dual-LED flash. The high operating pixel resolution of 2592x 1944 means that the resulting images are of fantastic quality and detail, whilst the previously mentioned features simplify the task of taking great snapshots. Additionally, the phone can be used to shoot high definition video footage in 720p quality. An additional feature of the camera is geo-tagging which utilises GPS to keep track of where the camera has been used.
The Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating System works alongside the highly regarded 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor for lightening fast speeds of the user interface and to provide the necessary power to run demanding applications and multi tasking. A number of different multimedia and social networking features are included along with productivity tools such as the Microsoft Office document viewer.
The HTC HD 7 is a Smartphone which looks great and boasts a spec list to match. Whatever you are looking for from a Smartphone, the HTC HC 7 is a great choice as it is easy to use, yet powerful in every aspect.
