1. Nokia Lumia 800
Nokia Lumia 800
Crafted from injection moulded polycarbonate the Nokia Lumia 800 cuts an impressive visual appearance, lining up at 12.1mm thick the handset feels reassuringly solid in the hand and satisfactory sturdy whilst remaining light, sleek and certainly pocket-friendly.
Amply sized without being intrusive the Lumia 800’s 3.7-inch AMOLED Clear Black curved display is stunningly vibrant with the WP7 OS’s intense colours popping from the screen in crystal clarity. The device looks attractive and surprisingly high-end in all three of its black, cyan and magenta colour schemes.
2. HTC Titan
A giant in every sense of the word, the Titan with its hulking 4.7-inch SLCD display has a 1.5Ghz single core processor and 512MB of RAM to ensure its no slouch. There 's 16Gb of internal storage, an 8-megapixel camera capable of panoramic photos, access to HTC Watch where you can download films to watch later and has the all important Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS on board.
3. Samsung Omnia 7
Samsung Omnia 7
The Omnia 7 comes with a 1GHz processor and a regulation 5mp camera as well. The interesting change here is that Samsung has opted for AMOLED, rather than LCD technology. Other nice implementations include an FM radio, 720p HD video recording and the 1500mAh battery shouldn't prove too shabby either...
4. HTC HD7
The HTC HD7 fronts up a giant 4.3-inch LCD, making it all about content consumption. A neat little feature HTC have implemented is the kickstand, allowing you to sit the device on your desk whilst you watch a movie. Crisp sound is supplied through Dolby Mobile and SRS surround sound.
Connectivity wise, HTC have implemented quad band, n-Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 3.5mm jack. Also included is a 1230mAh battery, 720p HD video camera, and three sensors; motion proximity and light.
5. HTC 7 Mozart
HTC 7 Mozart
The 7 Mozart is an exclusive device to Orange in the UK. The screen is cut down to 3.7-inches, compared with the gigantic HD7, but what it loses in terms of display size it makes up for in imaging with a storming 8mp camera accompanied by a proper flash and 720p HD video capture. Connectivity, sensors and the sound options are the same as the HD7 but has a slightly larger battery, which in turn should offer more life given the smaller screen.
6. LG Optimus 7
LG Optimus 7
This little device was the first of the Windows Phone 7 devices to be released. LG has also implemented a few features of its own in an effort to separate the Optimus 7 from the other WP7 handset launches. These features include Play-To and Scansearch.
7. Dell Venue Pro
Dell Venue Pro
A very slick portrait slider created by laptop giants Dell. There are only a couple of sliders among the WP7 devices so far, but what makes the Dell Venue Pro great is the portrait QWERTY rather than a landscape. It fronts a stunning AMOLED screen, justlike the Samsung Omnia 7. UK and US launch dates are imminent...
8. HTC Radar
Sibling to the mammoth HTC Titan, the Radar has Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS straight out of the box with a modest 3.8inch screen and a resolution of 400x800. A 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM keeps the Radar zipping along nicely, while there is a decent 8GB of storage on board. Throw in a 5-megapixel camera, 720 HD video recording and HTC Hubs to help get your daily social networking fix.
9. Nokia Lumia 710
Nokia Lumia 710
If you can't rustle up the cash to buy the Lumia 800, Nokia's budget Windows Phone 7 phone might just do trick instead. Boasting the same 1.4GHz processor, hardware acceleration and graphics processor as the Nokia Lumia 800, the 710 has been designed to be easily used with social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter and the video sharing website YouTube. It runs on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango and comes with a pair of Monster Purity HD headphones.
10. HTC 7 Pro
HTC 7 Pro
Aimed squarely at the business market, the HTC 7 Pro rocks a 3.6 inch screen and is accompanied by the same surround sound features in the HD7. An impressive 16GB of storage and the very handsome slide and tilt out QWERTY keyboard make it a strong contender. The obvious Microsoft Office and Outlook tie-ins should ensure seamless business connectivity.
