Taiwanese phone manufacturer HTC has today unveiled five new handsets that will run the new Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system, aiming to corner all areas of the market in the process.
Making up the family of Phone 7 powered HTC pocket blowers is the HTC 7 Surround, HTC 7 Trophy, HTC 7 Pro, HTC HD7 and the long rumoured and repeatedly leaked HTC 7 Mozart. Whilst each of these handsets has its own distinct characteristics and style, all will feature a 1GHz processor, 720p HD video recording capabilities and at least a 5-megapixel camera.
Although the HTC 7 Surround will be a US exclusive device, the remaining four handsets will be available in the UK with the HTC 7 Mozart to be made available exclusively from network provider Orange whilst O2 snag exclusive rights to the HTC HD7 for a UK market and Vodafone take exclusive control of the HTC 7 Trophy.
Standing out amongst the crowd has to be the HTC HD7 offering a large 4.3" touchscreen and coming with Xbox Live. Whereas hoping to encrouch just a little further into the BlackBerry realm is the HTC 7 Pro with slide-out keyboard and business focused funcionality.
