Maxis to offer HTC HD7

Want the latest phone using the latest mobile platform? Then your best best is with Maxis.

The operator has just announce that it will offer the just released HTC HD7 running on Windows Phone 7.

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
