HTC 7 Mozart smartphone (preview)

The Windows Phone 7-powered HTC 7 Mozart comes equipped with a 3.7in SLCD display and an 8-megapixel camera.

HTC is one of three mobile phone manufacturers to partner with Microsoft for the launch of Windows Phone 7, the company's new mobile operating system. Exclusive to Telstra, the HTC 7 Mozart comes equipped with a 3.7in SLCD display and an 8-megapixel camera. It is also the only Windows Phone 7 device to feature a Xenon flash.

The HTC 7 Mozart is crafted from a single piece of brushed aluminium; a similar design to the Android-powered HTC Legend and the upcoming HTC Desire HD. Like all HTC phones that run the Windows Phone 7 operating system, the 7 Mozart has HTC Hub, a software portal that provides access to a number of apps including weather, a photo enhancer, a sound enhancer, notes and stocks.

The HTC 7 Mozart is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. It has 8GB of internal memory, 576MB RAM and weighs 130g. Like all Windows Phone 7 devices, it lacks external storage, so there is no microSD card slot for extra memory.

The HTC 7 Mozart records 720p HD video, and has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a G-sensor (gyroscope), ambient light sensor and built-in GPS. It will be available exclusively through Telstra from 21 October for $0 upfront on Telstra's $49 cap plan over 24 months.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
