The HTC 7 Mozart integrates Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW HD for high-fidelity, virtual surround sound, as well as finally integrating Microsoft Zune. Whether this latter step will be enough to challenge iTunes is a key question, and one we’ll be looking to answer for you within days.

The HTC 7 Mozart will be available in the UK via an exclusive deal with Orange from late October. Microsoft says that Windows Phone 7 is designed around a unique Hub and Tile interface (aka homescreen and icon), and is betting the farm on integrating Xbox LIVE, Windows Live, Bing and Zune services.
