The Definitive Guide to Windows Phone 7 Handsets

The Definitive Guide to Windows Phone 7 Handsets

Eager for a piece of WP7? Here are the top phones you should consider, broken down by US carrier. You’re welcome.

T-Mobile

HTC 7 Mozart
It trumps the WP7 handsets announced by LG and Samsung today, with an 8MP camera and Xenon flash, and it also has Dolby Mobile and SRS Wow HD for “virtual surround sound”.

Otherwise, it’s very similar to the other WP7 phones HTC has announced, with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB RAM and 576MB of ROM, and 8GB of internal storage. The phone itself measures 119mm x 60.2mm x 11.9mm, and weighs 130g. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a G-sensor, ambient light sensor and GPS are natural inclusions.

AT&T


HTC 7 Surround

Weighing 165g, it measures 119.5mm x 61.5mm x 12.97mm and has the usual assortment of specs, such as Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, a G-sensor, ambient light sensor and a 5MP camera with LED flash, capable of 720p video recording. Inside, a 1230mAh battery lurks.

Sprint

HTC 7 Pro
Internally, it’s roughly the same phone ticking away as the various other WP7 handsets HTC is launching, with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, 576MB of ROM and 16GB of internal storage. That extra memory will be hugely appreciated, I’m sure.

It’s a little smaller in size than some of the other handsets, despite its slide-out keyboard. It measures 117.5mm x 59mm x 15.5mm, and weighs 183.5g. It’s crammed full with the usual specs, along with a 5MP camera with LED flash (capable of shooting 720p video) and a more powerful battery at 1500mAh. The Pro won’t be released until the first half of 2011.
