Two Windows Phone 7 handsets join the family:
First, AT&T will be adding a new model, the HTC HD7S, to its popular lineup of Windows Phone 7 handsets.
The HD7S, expected to arrive in the coming weeks, is aimed especially at people who love movies and videos. The phone features an eye-popping 4.3-inch super LCD touchscreen and a built-in kickstand that basically turns any tabletop into a mini-movie theater.
It’s also ideal for making impromptu home movies. The phone’s 5-megapixel camera records pristine 720p high-definition video, and sports autofocus and a dual LED flash.
The HD7S–which comes preloaded with popular AT&T apps including U-Verse Mobile, Navigator, and Family Map–joins AT&T’s three other popular Windows Phones models: the Samsung Focus, HTC Surround, and LG Quantum.
And, the first Windows Phone 7 CDMA-compatible “HTC Arrive” phone goes on sale at Sprint. If you haven’t seen this phone yet, definitely take a look. The $199 handset–the first on a CDMA network–features a cool metallic design and slide-out keyboard that’s already drawing kudos from reviewers.
Also, there’s has been a lot of buzz lately about the Windows Phone Marketplace passing the magic milestone of 10,000 apps, in just 4-odd months after launch–an apparent record.
With Angry Birds, Doodle Jump, and other hit games on the way in the coming months, it’s shaping up to be a fun spring.
And, at CTIA Wireless 2011 conference this week, Microsoft also previewing hotly-anticipated apps from the New York Times and AccuWeather, as well as showing off new Marketplace arrivals like RunKeeper, a popular app for tracking and measuring workouts.
