Anonymous, 24 Sep 2010i think the info is false 'coz it says HD7 in the text and actual picture says HD3.Then you didn't read the story
I dont believe these specs for a second. lets wait till the official announcement before slating it. If it is true then bashing time can begin!
This will not sell, period. WinMo and Kin are awaiting this in their grave.

I have been WM user for a while now, from the primitive PDAs to the latest smart phones. I have persisted with the sluggish unstable OS and its about time MS did something about it. My latest phone is the HTC HD. Compared to other older devices, I found the HTC HD a breath of fresh air. However, it has its issues. Typical MS product, as you use it, things get slower and slower. I have installed a few third party software to help it run smoothly, without this, the phone would be useless. What the problem is, MS products just need too much maintenance. You have to constantly reset the device, hard reset when things become very sluggish and slow. I think thatís what my device needs at the moment Ė a hard reset! The HTC HD was a good phone, however after having the phone just over a year things started to get slow and unstable, what is going on? I donít have the time for this maintenance business, all I want to do is use the device, after all I paid big money for the phone. I have problems with notifications (always has been an issue with MS products!), freezes when inputting text, freezes in the calculator program. The other thing I found was you canít lock up the screen when you have the password screen activated, so if you have the device in your pocket and a notification comes up, the notification will be minimise when touching the screen, as there is no lock, of course you can probably buy third party software to resolve the problem. Anyway, speaking to a few people that have the Iphone 4, they reckon its is all smooth sailing, no maintenance required, just use it. No sluggish unstable performance, it never happens. No reset or hard reset required. Now, thatís what I like. The time has come for a change! Unless MS can prove otherwise.
It can't have a memory card slot. Windows Phone 7 does NOT support external memory cards.
Eddie Android, 24 Sep 2010You know that Windows Phone 7 (WP7) is different from WM7 right? Two different platforms idiot... morewm7/wp7... whatever! at the end of the day this flagship phone has nothing new to offer to most potential buyers. if wm7 is so good they should have put it in a next gen htc handset
Laaaate to the party again Microsoft... when they are fixing their own "phone software" mistake, the trend is going for JA! fast and light mobile gadgets (ipad, tablets, etc) as an alternative for the sooo resource hungry Windows 7 which cripples any hardware. They are falling in their own pit holes. The solution and concept was right with Windows Mobile... soo bad they just dont listen to their customers, instead they are hearing the money... (marching awayyyyy!)
High Tech, 24 Sep 2010Second that.... I wouldn't mind trying WP7 UI with Sense on my HD2... We know the HD2 is capab... moreJust a thought... What if HTC is releasing the HD3 (with less specs) for TMobile to replace the HD2 (and for WP7 launch), and will release the HD7 for the masses (International) with far better specs, at a later time (early 2011)???? I just cannot believe after almost a year HTC only came up with the less spec HD3??????????
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2010 Its seems sheer disappointment. I was certainly expecting more. will retain my HTC HD2 .... Second that.... I wouldn't mind trying WP7 UI with Sense on my HD2... We know the HD2 is capable of running the OS.... Hope to see Xda dev port it to the HD2 when released next month....
Its seems sheer disappointment. I was certainly expecting more.

Anonymous, 23 Sep 2010Specs are nothing to write home about. Windows mobile fail againSpec IS NOT coming from windows phone, it's HTC's kid !
Mark, 23 Sep 2010My first reactions on reading this article are: 1. Why no SD card slot - my HD2 much-loved ... moreYou know that Windows Phone 7 (WP7) is different from WM7 right? Two different platforms idiot. If you ever get the chance to play a Zune HD you'll see there will he a lot of developers making apps for this. This will have the a different app store than windows mobile.
Ok, so most current high-end phones have similar specs: 3.3" to 4.3" WQVGA touchscreens, either Hummingbird or Snapdragon 1GHz CPUs, 5MP to 8MP cameras with flash, 720p video recording and 2 to 32GB of internal memory... Nothing new! Question is, regardless of the brand, does Microsoft really think people will choose WP7 over Android, Symbian, iOS or even Bada??? I don't think so!!!!
Courtney Mathis, 23 Sep 2010this phone is nothing like the hd2. the hd2 runs on windows 6.5 this is a tmobile exclusive wi... morecheck out the hd2 specs on gsm arena: same 4.3 inch screen, same snapdragon processor & even same 5meg camera with dual led flash. Do yr homework, all thats different is the operating system inside! Will that be enough for me & many others, I dont think so
