HTC 7 Mozart

The HTC 7 Mozart is part of this company’s newest collection of smartphones based on Windows 7 Phone. Even though the company started out by making Windows Mobile handsets, many were wondering if they abandoned Microsoft in favor of the new Android OS. Turns out they didn’t, and this phone only proves it.

The Mozart is a powerful smartphone that has a lot of things to offer to its potential buyers. It comes in a sleek and slim body carved out of one aluminum piece (just like Apple’s Macbook laptops) with full touch controls, a 3.7 inch WVGA screen, 1 GHz Qualcomm QSD 8250 processor (which is faster than a similar Snapdragon, on par with Samsung’s Hummingbird), 576 MB of RAM, 8 GB of built in storage and an external micro SD card slot and support for 720p recording.

HTC markets it as an aesthetic multimedia phone for consumers and professionals alike, and they specifically mention the unibody construction and the integrated Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW HD high fidelity surround sound that makes the audio have a 3D feel to it, which is pretty impressive for such a small device.

The Mozart is pretty slim at only 11.9 mm, and it weighs 130 grams, which is pretty average for touchscreen-only smartphones. Besides the above mentioned special features, the HTC Mozart is equipped with your standard array of technologies, including Draft-N Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, a 3.5 mm stereo jack, a microUSB port and an 8 megapixels camera. Besides the usual motion sensor and accelerometer, the device features a proximity and ambient light sensors, which help the phone save battery life by automatically dimming the screen and lights (plus it looks pretty cool :-).

The HTC Mozart will be released on October 21st in Europe and later in the US, along with the HD7, 7 Pro and 7 Trophy, all of which have specific features of their own and target slightly different markets.
