Windows Phone 7 on HTC HD7

It has been official for quite some time now, but for every new bit of confirmed information regarding the HTC HD7, the more we are convinced that this could very well be the quintessential WP7 handset.

When Windows Phone 7 was first announced last February, it was hard to pinpoint which phone makers would be working on the device. Steve Ballmer already hinted that many devices would be released for the new OS, but since Microsoft has no constant industry partner, it was hard to guess which one would be taking the lead when it came to the new OS.

At this point in time, that it still up in the air, but if there was one phone maker than seems to be in a better position above all others –it would be Taiwan based HTC. The phone maker has already had strong ties with Microsoft since the pocket PC era.

Now, HTC is once again showing that they are a strong partner for Microsoft –despite the fact that HTC is also deeply involved in the development of the Android operating system (and is, in fact, an industry partner for Google). The latest videos of the HTC HD7 showcases excellent phone design, integrated elements of the Sense UI in the WP7 OS and of course, the new Microsoft mobile platform itself.

So far, the HTC HD7 is turning out to be a very promising device.

The handset packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz CPU, a 4.3 inch WVGA capacitive touch screen and a 5 mega pixel camera –which is pretty much the whole summary of Microsoft’s pre-requisite hardware specs for all WP7 devices. Of course, it will still be a pretty tough climb for HTC and all the phone makers this October when they all vie for the position of top Windows Phone 7 handset.
