HTC have announced that their HD7 smartphone – which runs on the new Windows Phone 7 OS – will be available exclusively on the O2 network in Ireland.
The handset – which is a follow-up to the behemoth that was the HD2 – will be the company’s first to run on the new Microsoft platform and is part of a deal with the network that also covers Britain and Germany.
Much like the HD2 the new HD7 will have a whopping 4.3in touch-screen and also surround-sound speakers. There is a 5mp camera and the potential for 720p HD video recording, while a handy kick-stand on the back allows users to prop the phone up while watching videos.
The HTC HD7 is one of a raft of Windows Phone 7-based devices that are likely to hit the market in the coming weeks and months. LG have also announced the arrival of their Optimus 7 handset, which will start to roll out in Europe from the end of October.
An exact release date for the HD7 – or pricing details – are still unknown but more is likely to be released very soon.
