T-Mobile Launching HD7 on November 8th for $200
T-Mobile has just announced the launching of their new HTC phone, the HD7. This is one of the very first smartphones which will run on the Microsoft software, Windows Phone 7. The launch will happen next month on November, 8th and will go for $200 when you sign up for a two year contract.
The company, based out of Bellevue, Washington, stated that the HD7 is running on the Windows Phone 7 OS and by doing so is going to offer a very strong slate of options when it comes to entertainment. The HTC HD7 will have a touch-screen 4.3” in size; this is one of the biggest available on a smartphone, which is designed for watching movie streams from Netflix or live television through the T-Mobile TV.
The phone even has a kickstand which will flip up and allow you to prop the device up in order to allow for more comfortable viewing.
Microsoft took many features from their other departments and integrated them into the Windows Phone 7 platform. Some of these are like the ability for you to connect to the Xbox Live in order to play your games with more than 25 million others along with the ability to use Zune in order to load podcasts or music.
Additionally, T-Mobile also added some other new services as well, such as, Slacker Radio and a new application called Family Room which allows customers to share their:
- Calendar events
Some additional features include:
- 5megapixel camera w/dual LED flash and an HD video recording
- 1gigahertz Snapdragon chip
- 3G connectivity
- 16gigabytes of storage
The HD7 is something that brings together the information and the experience that matters to smartphone customers.
The HD7 is going to be the latest flagship phone for T-Mobile as they’ve been currently struggling to retain their customers getting really stiff competition AT&T and their iPhone along with the multitude of Droid devices. The HD7 is going to be joining the Dell Venue Pro in order to round out their new smartphones for the holidays.
A successful launch is something that’s critical to a turnaround for Microsoft. After the failure of their Kin devices and falling behind both Apple and Google they’re spending a half billion to market their new Windows Phone 7 devices in order to begin propelling them into the consciousness of the consumer.
