HTC has announced the HTC7 Trophy mobile phone, one of three new handsets to run on the eagerly anticipated Windows Phone 7 operating system.
The HTC 7 Trophy is the most basic of the three HTC Windows-powered phones, lacking the Mozart’s 8Mp camera or the HD7’s large 4.3-inch display. However because Microsoft has insisted that all Windows phones have the same high level of minimum specifications it’s still well equipped.
HTC 7 Trophy specs
So the HTC 7 Trophy has the same 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording. It has a 3.8-inch touchscreen, has 8GB of internal memory (though no memory card slot) and weighs 140g.
The HTC 7 Trophy can access the internet via HSDPA (3.5G) and wi-fi and has a 1300mAh battery. HTC claims this gives up to five and a half hours talktime and 18 days standby time when used on a 3G network.
Price and availability
Like all the new Windows Phone 7 based devices (with the possible exception of the Dell Venue Pro), the HTC 7 Trophy 7 will go on sale on October 21 October. It will be available exclusively through Vodafone and will cost from £25 a month on a two year contract. This makes it the cheapest of the new Windows phones.
