Not a groundbreaking new Windows Phone 7 device but simply following T-Mobile USA's earlier launch of the HTC HD7, AT&T and HTC today announced that the HTC HD7S smartphone will be available as part of the AT&T family of smartphones in the coming weeks. Featuring the same specs as the original HTC HD7, the slim and sleek HTC HD7S comes with a large 4.3" Super LCD WVGA touchscreen, high-definition video capture and a focus on gaming that realizes the power of Xbox LIVE - bringing gameplay to life. With the HTC HD7S, HTC is bringing its second Windows Phone 7 device to AT&T which means AT&T will soon have 4 Windows Phone 7 smartphones on sale!
The HTC HD7S is an entertainment lover's dream. The Windows Phone typical 1 GHz processor can handle data-intensive applications, while integration with Zune means that users can enjoy not only music, but their favorite videos and movies in cinematic-style on the large 4.3" high-resolution screen and built-in kickstand. For those who refuse to compromise on their mobile gaming experience, the HTC HD7S brings gameplay to life by harnessing the power of Xbox LIVE. For capturing video with incredible quality and detail, the HTC HD7S features a 5 megapixel 720p HD camcorder.
Windows Phone 7 delivers a simple, streamlined and integrated experience on the HTC HD7S through Windows Phone Hubs. Windows Phone Hubs bring together a related set of applications, services and content into a single view to simplify common tasks. With the exclusive HTC Hub, HTC is providing a unique series of applications and utilities that include weather and stock applications and a photo enhancer that enables a person to apply special effects before sharing photos with their friends. The unique AT&T U-verse mobile app, which allows U-verse customers to manage their DVR recordings, browse TV listings, and download and watch hit TV shows on the HTC HD7S's extra-large display, is also integrated into the device.
Since the HTC HD7S is slated to be available through AT&T in the coming weeks, it can be expect that it will be launched straight away with Microsoft's upcoming NoDo update which features some important Windows Phone 7 enhancements. A price wasn't announced today.
