The last Windows Phone 7 device we reviewed, HTC Mozart, left us highly disappointed. Although the hardware was quite decent, the software failed to impress us. Apart from being slick and visually appealing, it had little more to offer, whether it was in terms of built-in features or third party applications. In the light of such strong competition from Apple and Google, Microsoft's latest offering just comes across as an incomplete package with a large "Work In Progress" sign over it.
Today, we have another Windows Phone 7 device with us and it's called the HTC HD7. For those keeping track, this is the third avatar of this handset, the first being the HD2 running the infamous Windows Mobile operating system and the second being Sprint's Evo 4G running Android. The phone has now been modified to run Windows Phone 7 and we are about to find out how good is it as a premium smartphone.
