HTC HD7 And Windows Phone 7 Make A Stunning Combination
Tomorrow is launch day for Windows Phone 7 but I've had some hands on time with O2's exclusive HTC HD7 this afternoon what a stunning handset this turns out to be be. Microsoft have done a truly spectacular job on the interface and, by comparison, Android starts to look cluttered and iOS positively archaic. The UI is smooth and speedy and everything looks so much more grown up and designed as a piece of work. The concept of the Windows Mobile Today Screen remains, but its a very different animal wrapped up like this.
I can't say whether the functionality or capabilities of the new OS are better or worse than anything out there (other than the missing functions we already know about) but its clear that Microsoft have taken a giant leap forward in look and feel.
Initial exposure would certainly suggest that Microsoft have a potential winner on their hands. Let's see how the consumer market takes to it...
