Telstra, Vodafone coup HTC Windows 7 Phones

By on

Telstra and Vodafone will become the recipients of HTC’s new Windows Phone 7 lineup, lining them up as exclusive phones to kick start their Windows Phone 7 offerings in Australia.

The HTC HD7 (pictured above) is Windows Phone 7’s answer to HTC’s own Android-run EVO, and features a large 4.3 screen with a kickstand, similar to the HTC Evo. It has a 1GHz processor, 16GB of storage, a 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 720p HD recording and support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The Mozart, however, is designed to be more of a music centric device, with a smaller 3.7-inch screen, and 8GB of storage, but still has the 1GHz processor. Unlike the HD7, Mozart will get an 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash and 720p HD recording. Both Mozart and HD7 are heading to Telstra.

Vodafone, however, gets the HTC 7 Trophy, which is a more gaming centric device. With a 3.8-inch screen, it also has 8GB internal flash memory along with a 1GHz processor. It also features a 5 megapixel camera with flash, plus 720p HD video recording. Vodafone Australia will get this as an exclusive.

Also announced was the HTC Surround – designed to be a multimedia-packed phone with integrated Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW HD surround sound speakers – and the HTC 7 Pro – targeted to corporate users. These will be launched in the US with Surround on AT&T and Pro with Sprint in 2011.
