Not a winner here in the US. No CDMA support which means no Sprint or Verizon. You may not know it but stateside that's a HUGE letdown. I understand they wanna reach the most phones with GSM but goddamn. Those networks suck ass. Maybe next year there'll be an uber 4G version and I'll upgrade from my EVO which I make mad passionate love to every night.

I believe Verizon won't be selling WP7 devices until next year so they are on their way at least Pakman! :)

That XBOX Live integration must have some people interested here.

ya, that phone looks very nice and powerful.    4.3 inch screen?    huge!   i have t mobile, and it looks like it's coming with stuff just for tmobile.    hmmmmm will i pull the trigger on this thing some time?




The HD7 is the quintessential HTC phone—a 4.3-inch slab with a 1GHz processor, 16GB internal storage, 5-megapixel, 720p video-shooting camera, and naturally, a kickstand. Despite being oh-so-familiar, it could very still be the Windows Phone to get.

Since it's on T-Mobile, you'll get a few things pre-loaded alongside the standard Windows Phone 7 kit, like Netflix, Slacker Radio, TeleNav GPS and T-Mobile's Family Room.

T-Mobile's got the HD7 exclusively in the US when it launches in "mid-November," and across Europe it will O2, Telefonica Movistar for Spain, or Bouygues Telecom in France. [HD7]
