HTC HD7 spec sheet leak shows T-Mobile band
The spec sheet for the upcoming HTC HD7 smartphone has just been leaked at WMPowerUser. The specs reveal a device that will be only slightly larger than the existing HD2 and which will have support for T-Mobile USA's 1,700MHz 3G band. The HD7 is expected to replace the flagship HD2 at the carrier.
Like with the HD2, it is likely the HD7 will be bundled with a 16GB microSDHC memory card for the US market and an 8GB card in Europe. New, preloaded apps should include a To Do list, a bedside clock and a Parking Meter Widget, which amounts to a countdown timer with a specific goal.
The specs also confirm a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 576MB of RAM, a five-megapixel camera, an FM radio tuner, and 8GB of built-in storage. The 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen will support multiple simultaneous inputs, and have a 480x800 resolution.
The device may cost as much as the equivalent of $729 in Germany without a contract, or just $26 on a two-year term. US timing isn't clear, though Microsoft has sent signals that most American launches are due in November.
