This morning, we saw blueprints of what the HTC HD7 would look like. This afternoon, we get to see the handset in real images. Taiwanese forum mobile01.com has posted several images of the HD7 Windows Phone 7 device. The handset has the very familiar HTC form, kickstand (albeit not where we were expecting), and super-thin bezel. We’ve got a few more shots of the device after the break.
Blog WMPoweruser has just published several sketches of what the HTC HD7 Windows Phone 7 device will look like. The schematic isn’t quite as good as an image, but you can use your imagination — and knowledge of HTC hardware — to fill in the blanks. The handset looks to have that familiar EVO form, with a 4.3-inch screen, dual-LED flash, and beveled back. There is an outline of something on the lower-rear quarter of the device which could be a kickstand (although that is unconfirmed). Hopefully, as rumored, the operating system — and accompanying hardware — is on track for an October launch. More →
It looks like TMoNews has gotten there mitts on — what appears to be anyway — an accessories guide for U.S. carrier T-Mobile. What sets this list apart from others is that it details the availability of accessories for several unreleased, and even a few unknown, handsets. First and foremost, the sheet lists several cases for the HTC HD7 — a Windows Phone 7 device — as November 1. Want more? How about accessories for the LG Optimus T for November 1, Dell Claire for November 15, BlackBerry Bold 9780 for November 15, and Motorola Begonia for November 1. A phone simply referred to as the “Comet” is also listed with the date of November 1; no manufacturer is listed.
We have a pretty good idea of what the HD7, Optiums T, and Bold 9780 will look like. The Begonia, Comet, and Claire, however, are all new discoveries.
It is important to keep in mind that these are not handset launch dates, but rather dates that accessories will be available; TMoNews doesn’t specify whether that availability is to stores or warehouses or what. Regardless, if accessories are being made, the handsets have to be put into the wild soon. Anything on this laundry list enticing? More →
