HTC 7 Mozart
Of the new HTC Windows Phone 7 handsets headed for the UK the HTC 7 Mozart looks to be the fashionista of the bunch. It’s got a supercharged 8-megapixel camera, which makes it unique among the current crop of Windows Phone 7 handsets (HTC or otherwise). The Mozart boasts Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW HD audio technology and has the extra cool factor of its main body being fashioned from a lump of aluminium. You get a sizeable 8GB of internal storage for music and pictures and can sync the Mozart with your Zune profile (if you have one).
The HTC 7 Mozart might have the bigger camera and the cooler looks, but it can’t match the HTC HD7 for screen size. The HD7’s impressive 4.3-inch display makes the 7 Mozart’s 3.7-inch screen took a tad on the small side and will make for a bigger, better browsing experience in our eyes. Its no slouch when it comes to taking pictures and playing music either. The HTC HD7 features a 5-megapixel camera which captures HD video at 720p and it too comes with Dolby Mobile and SRS surround sound. Again, there’s 8GB of memory to fill up with pictures and playlists.
HTC 7 Trophy
If you’ve got Xbox LIVE and were excited about the prospect of being able to remotely manage your account from Win Pho 7 device then the HTC 7 Trophy is the phone for you. While not a fully fledged ‘Xbox Phone’ (which would probably be the best phone ever) you can earn points through it for games you’ll later play on the big screen back at home. As a phone it’s pretty decent as well; you get 8GB of on board memory, Dolby Mobile surround sound and a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash which can shoot 720p HD video. Physically its very similar to the HTC 7 Mozart – it’s pretty slim and pocket friendly – but it doesn’t sport that fetching metal jacket.
HTC 7 Pro
The HTC 7 Pro is perhaps best thought as ‘the serious one’ of the four phones on offer here. It’s primarily a working professionals phone; it comes with a slide-out Qwerty keyboard and allows you to view and edit Microsoft Office files on the go. Thankfully the HTC 7 Pro plays as hard as it works. It comes with a sizeable 16GB of memory – double than that of the others above – which gives you plenty of space for your playlists and pictures. The camera also matches those found on the HD7 and 7 Trophy – 5-megapixels with 720p HD video recording, which appears to be the standard camera set up for all Windows Phone 7 devices.
