    We've only seen Windows Phone 7 Mango running on the Asus prototype as well as on the HTC Trophy-like Mazaa with both the occasion of our Mango hands-on videos as well as Eldar Murtazin's twelve-megapixel Windows Phone leak. A video has surfaced on YouTube showing Windows Phone Mango running on the HTC HD7 -- or is it the HD7S? You won't see anything out of the ordinary in this video that you haven't already known about the upcoming Windows Phone 7 platform refresh but oddly enough these build keep on popping up and we can't help but wonder whether Microsoft is giving out HD7 smartphones ...

    The HTC HD7S on AT&T is very similar to the older HD7 on T-Mobile, however there are some significant differences and improvements. As with most Windows Phone 7 devices, the HTC HD7S is running a 1Ghz Snapdragon QSD8250 processor with 576Mb RAM, 512MB ROM, and 16Gb of storage. The 4.3" Super LCD screen has a 480x800 pixel resolution and 4 point multi-touch. You've also got the usual WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, Assisted GPS, 5Mp camera with dual LED flash, 1230mAh battery, 3.5mm stereo headphone jack, and a Micro-USB 2.0 port. The device dimensions are 68 x 122 x 11.2 millimeters, and it ...

    If you're into buying a Windows Phone-powered smartphone, Microsoft Store has you covered as it has a great deal on some devices running the Redmond-platform and listed on different carriers. The Verizon Trophy, Sprint Arrive and T-Mobile HD 7, all made by the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, are being sold for $0.01 of course, all with their respective two-year contracts. The offer is also valid for new lines, upgrades/renewal or add-a-line. Strangely AT&T doesn't have any Windows Phones listed but if you're into either CDMA or T-Mobile this is your chance to grab one Windows Phone for close ...

    According to reports, the HTC HD7 on T-Mobile has started getting its Windows Phone update treat, users being able to bump the version numbers to 7392, a build which also brings the security fix for Internet Explorer with relation to SSL certs. After resuming the update process for the May security update for some Omnia 7 users, Microsoft stated that AT&T Samsung Focus users will have to wait just a tad more until they will be able to install the security fix. Maybe next week will bring build 7392 to the Focus too and that way all Windows Phone-powered smartphones on AT&T will hopefully be ...

    Everybody wants the Copy & Paste feature on their smartphones these days, even if they never use it, but how exactly has this feature been implemented on the wide array of mobile device operating systems available today? We'll take a look at how Copy & Paste works on Windows Phone 7, Apple's iOS 4, Android 2.2, Symbian S^3, Blackberry 6, and even the extremely old Windows Mobile 5.0. Naturally some designs may make it easier than others. Personally, I think the way Windows Mobile did it from the late 1990's through 2010 was the most intuitive since it most resembled the same way you would ...

    Today we catch word from XDA.cn that several developers have been hard at work porting Android to HTC's HD7, a Windows Phone 7 smartphone who's hardware closely resembles the HTC HD2. It has been hoped that the HD7 would see similar development, with the HD2 originally debuting with Windows Mobile and now capable of running nearly every mobile OS available. User "Pepsi" provides us with a video demonstrating the HTC HD7 performing several functions in Android (the build looks to be Froyo). The Chinese-language ROM is demonstrated from initial device bootup through the HTC Sense homescreen, ...

    Last December many users of the T-Mobile HD7 were annoyed because there was only one keyboard support on the device and that was English. Turns out that after the latest updates, the device still only supports the aforementioned language according to reports. Back then, HTC said: "If your Windows Phone 7 does not contain a display language that you would like to use, there is currently no way to get a new language pack installed on the phone. Microsoft makes language packs available (as they're created) to the device manufacturers (OEMs) at the time of manufacturing and it is up to the ...

    Yesterday we caught wind of a rumor that T-Mobile would begin distributing the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update to HD7 users sometime today. Without any confirmation at the time, nor a particularly convincing source for the news, we really didn't know what to think and just hoped for the best. Lucky for T-Mobile users, the rumor now appears verified, as the company has started making updates available to not only HD7 users, but Dell Venue Pro owners as well. T-Mobile customers have reported getting both the February pre-NoDo WP7 update, as well as NoDo itself. We hadn't heard of the possibility ...

    With Microsoft's deployment of the WP7 NoDo update, we knew that phones tied to a carrier would have the longest waits in store for them, and haven't been anticipating seeing many get the software in the immediate future. With things like this, though, we like being wrong, and now there's a change that HTC HD7 owners on T-Mobile in the States could be getting their NoDo as soon as tomorrow, March 29. Though it doesn't cite its source, TmoNews reports that it's been informed that T-Mobile will start with the HD7 NoDo in just a manner of hours. We definitely weren't counting on it arriving ...

    While Microsoft has yet to open Windows Phone 7's compass API to app developers, handset manufacturers have access to more open programming tools. This allows HTC to release the first WP7 magnetic compass app with the HTC Arrive. The app was simultaneously introduced to the marketplace and it was quickly discovered to be compatible with other HTC WP7 devices. The app prompts you to wave your phone in a figure-eight to calibrate the sensor, then overlays a compass on a map of your current location. The map allows you to select a destination for walking directions, and rotates according to ...

    As you probably heard, there are two build numbers around the Internet for Windows Phone 7 NoDo: 7389 and 7390. Build 7389 was leaked on the Internet some time ago and some used it to debrand their T-Mobile HD7. While already running Windows Phone 7 NoDo build 7389, a user received an update notification for the March update, which is, of course, NoDo. After applying the update, he was presented with Windows Phone 7 NoDo build 7390. This is normal from several points of view: 1. the initial leaked NoDo was not the final version to be rolled-out and 2. 7390 -- besides being final -- is the ...

    The HTC HD7 was available on T-Mobile for about $199 with a new contract -- we gave it a 3.5 out of 5 -- but looks like AT&T has got it up its sleeve with the carrier announcing the HTC HD7S. AT&T is announcing the HD7S as the largest screened Windows Phone 7 to be available on the carrier as it will be joining the HTC Surround, Samsung Focus and LG Quantum. It will be shipping with the latest version of Windows Phone 7 -- that is the NoDo update already applied -- pretty much like the HTC Arrive on Sprint. As usual with AT&T Windows Phones, it will come preloaded with U-verse. The AT&T ...

    HTC has submitted a Windows Phone 7 handset for FCC approval whose model number, label, and 3G band support suggest that it is a version of the HD7 suitable for use on AT&T. Packing the WCDMA Band V and II radios required for AT&T HSPA connectivity, this device goes by the model number PD29130 -- just one digit off from the PD29110, a WCDMA Band IV-compliant Windows Phone from HTC which passed the FCC on October 4th and is almost certainly T-Mobile's HD7. What's more, the two devices sport FCC ID labels which are the exact same size and shape, highly suggestive of the fact that they are ...

    Microsoft has finally started to roll-out its first major Windows Phone 7 update a couple of hours ago but it might take over a week (or two) for the refresh to reach you if you have a carrier branded device. Chris Walsh, member of the ChevronWP7 team has posted a workaround on its blog letting carrier-branded HTC users emulate a non-branded Windows Phone 7 in order to apply the update immediately. The procedure "un-brands" the HTC device and tricks the system into believing it is carrier independent and good to go for the update. Please note that the hack is for HTC devices only and is an ...

    Australian carrier Telstra announced joining up with Microsoft and HTC today for bringing the HTC HD7 Windows Phone exclusively to its line-up. "HTC HD7 arrives at a time when Aussies are increasingly turning to their smartphones for entertainment and gaming" said Andrew Volard, Director, Telstra Mobility Products. With its 4.3-inch display, the HTC HD7 will be a great choice for RRP $768 (repayable over 24 months when purchased in conjunction with a Consumer Telstra Next G Cap plan or a Telstra Business Mobile PLUS Plan) once it will be available on March 29. Regardless if it will feature ...
