Maxis has started accept registration of interest for its first Windows Phone 7 bundling with the HTC HD7. The HTC HD7 is a 4.3″ touch screen device with 5.0MP camera assisted with dual flash which also does 720p HD video recording. This could probably be the first contract Windows Phone 7 offer, if there isn’t any new surprises from DiGi or Celcom.
As mentioned earlier, the RRP for the HTC HD7 is RM2399. No word on the pricing but we expect similar bundling like its Android line up whereby it is bundled with data plan for 12-24 months.
The contest is simple enough, all you need to do is get as many people to support your cause in making the HTC HD7 prize your. The more support you get the better the chance of you winning one.

The HTC HD7 is HTC’s media powerhouse device running on the new Windows Phone 7 platform. It packs a 4.3in screen with a 1GHz processor and 576MB of RAM. There’s 16GB worth of internal storage, oddly enough there’s no mention of microSD support.
The HD7 also has a 5MP camera that’s capable of recording video in 720p. As a media player phone, the HD7 can output sound in Dolby Mobile with SRS surround sound capabilities. As media phone, we don’t like that there’s no HDMI connectivity.
No world on pricing or availability but expect the HD7 to be priced along the same lines as the HTC Desire

Android’s 4.3″ devices like the EVO 4G and Moto Droid X now have a Windows Phone 7 competitor, the HTC HD7. Like the majority of the Windows Phone 7 devices, they often share similar specs and design as its Android counterparts.
Android Central has a hands-on comparison of the new HD7 with the EVO 4G. There are obvious similiarities between the 2 especially the camera, kickstand and LED flash lights at the back. A similiar sized Motorola Droid X is compared side by side as well too.

Wondering if Microsoft will do the same thing as Apple’s doing and standardise advertisements in all markets. If they are you can expect to see this ad on Malaysian TV channels soon.
Microsoft Malaysia will be launching the Windows Phone 7 tomorrow and we’ll provide you with the latest updates. Stay tuned.

Finally Microsoft has launched its new Windows Phone 7 platform with a barrage of devices. At launch there are at least 10 WP7 devices with 5 coming from HTC alone. Other manufacturers jumping on board the WP7 wagon include Dell, LG and Samsung.
Windows Phone 7 will make its way to more than 30 countries and over 60 carriers worldwide. In the US, AT&T and T-Mobile will start offering the devices while other CDMA players such as Verizon and Sprint will be offering them early next year. European and Asian carriers will start having them by October 21st followed by US on November 8th.
The hardware themselves look very similar as most if not all of them are running on Qualcomm 1GHz processor with 800×480 AMOLED screen. With a glance of a spec sheet, you would probably mistaken it for an Android device if you missed the operating system part.
The biggest thing happening this month will be Microsoft’s comeback to the mobile arena with Windows Phone 7. The official platform launch is happening October 11 and we’re expecting a plethora of WP7 devices to hit the market soon after that.
Word on the street is that Microsoft will be launching WP7 simultaneously worldwide so we’re expecting the new platform to make and appearance here in Malaysia.
If this early built of the Windows Phone 7 is anything to go by, there’s indeed a lot to loo forward to come its launch this October 11. Question is now, how well with the app ecosystem support WP7 because as sleek as the platform goes, that will be the deciding factor in this epic mobile OS battle.
In any case, head on over to after the jump to see how WP7 compares against the iPhone 4 and Nexus One.
Microsoft’s most significant mobile launch will happen next week October 11. We have no confirmation yet whether this will be a global launch or not but if the earlier report of Microsoft giving its global staff a Windows Phone 7 phone at launch then it would be safe to assume so.
There’s no denying that Microsoft has the footprint and resources to do a global launch and if you look back at all the previous product launches done by the software powerhouse, almost all has been global launches.
We’re very excited about this as we were all fans and users of Windows Mobile way back in the days when it was called Windows Pocket PC. In fact our first PDA experience was the Phillips Nino launched in the late 90s.
Windows Phone 7 marks Microsoft’s comeback into the lucrative mobile market and they world is watching. As it is, they’re off to a good start with leading device manufacturers like HTC, Samsung and Sony Ericsson and LG all developing WP7 based devices.
We can’t wait.
