(Updated: Only Announced For T-Mobile UK) HTC 7 Mozart Officially Announced, Launching November 7th

Update: Hey guys, David here and I’m sitting in a room with the HTC folks and they say thus far, the Mozart has only been announced for T-Mobile overseas. They didn’t say the Mozart wasn’t coming to T-Mobile when I pressed the question but there is no announcement for this device at this time. Only the HD7 and Dell Venue Pro are definite’s for Magenta.

Remember the HTC Mozart of which we first heard about all the way back in July, and then was found in the wild with video footage? Today, at the Windows Phone 7 launch event, the HTC 7 Mozart has been officially announced and will be landing on Magenta’s shores next month. The HTC 7 Mozart is crafted from a single piece of anodized aluminum (similar to the G2), making it feel great in the hand. The Mozart sports a 3.7-inch capacitive touch screen with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB RAM and 576MB of ROM, and 8GB of internal storage. The device measures 119mm x 60.2mm x 11.9mm (4.7in x 2.37in x 0.47in) and weighs 130g (4.6oz). What puts the HTC 7 Mozart apart from the other HTC Windows Phone 7 handsets announced? The Mozart has the highest megapixel-camera of the new devices announced. It features an 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus,  Xenon flash, and 720p HD Video recording. Additionally, the handset integrates Dolby Mobile™ and SRS WOW HD™ for high-fidelity, virtual surround sound. With Microsoft Zune integration, people can synchronize the HTC 7 Mozart with their PC, enabling them to take their music and video library with them wherever they go. The HTC 7 Mozart will officially go on sale November 7th. So that makes a total of three Windows Phone 7 handsets you can choose from, the HTC HD7, the Dell Venue Pro,

    by far, the nicest WP7 handset so far

  • xitaxuta

    i think i’ve just found my next phone!! WP7 FTW!!!

  • Vibrant Addict

    This and the Dell phone are very nice. I especially like that ‘Dolby Mobile™ and SRS WOW HD™’ extremely tempting. Haha.

  • Hmmm, I think I want the Dell Venue Pro. They think that’s really drawing me to these is the fact I can integrate my Zune software & media into this. I can use my Zune pass & take all my unlimited music WITH ME! I been wishing Android did that, but here goes Windows to do their own job & integrate their music software into their phones. & The Venue Pro has the QWERTY keyboard & That big a** screen. I don’t need a huge megapixel count as long as the quality is great.

  • J-Hop2o6

    T-Mo just dropped a BOMBSHELL!!! 3 WP7 announcements in ONE DAY.. thats un-Tmo like! but i love it!!

    • Andrew

      If only they were android

  • Rpinazo

    WOW, T-MOBILE IS JUST HITTING US WITH LEFT AND RIGHTS WITH ALL THESE PHONES COMING SOON THAT ITS HARD TO CHOOSE…LOL. (I MEAN IT IN A GOOD WAY)

    • justin

      SOMEBODY’S EXCITED!!!!!

      • nathaniel brinklevoss

        OMFG KAPZ PARTY!

    • LuvMyGreenRobot

      I love how people were all negative about T-Mobile saying they have horrible phones. All of a sudden they are rolling in the punches big time. Even though I love Android, I have to give kudos for the very sexy looking Windows phones. Very nice!

  • Michael

    When will T-mobile get a 4.3″ HTC android like the HTC DESIRE HD now that’s a phone… Come on t-mobile

    • David

      Go away troll.

    • Tom

      Wow go post in a non WP7 post…

    • Thats Kind Of True But I still Like This Bring On The New Phones!

  • did this look exactly the same as the nexus one? hows the size compared the the nexus? I love my nexus, but this is kinda cool.

  • Sameer

    Is this coming out for T-mobile USA? If it is hello T-mobile USA and good bye AT&T

    • elithegreat

      This is TMOnews….so the announcements made on this site on various smartphones, etc. are landing on T-Mobile.

  • thaghost

    Tmo is winning my heart back. i was extremely critical of ur phone selection. now ur stepping to da plate…n hitting doubles, triples n homeruns. great job.

  • Chevyrockstar

    i really like this just not sure if i can go back to windows after android

  • Donald Reese

    Stay away from the Dell, my motto, remember the AXIM

  • The Mozart is my choice.
    I’ll do without the keyboard.

  • Jonathan

    I think thusfar, all of T-Mobile USA’s Windows Phone 7 devices look far superior to what AT&T is offering. (I never thought I’d be able to say that about T-Mo.) :-)

  • TheDude

    Wonder why this isn’t listed as under T-Mobile US at microsoft.com?

    http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2010/oct10/10-11MSWP7PR.mspx

    I’m not at the event but I can at least hope that someone got it right with it coming to US shores and not just UK.

  • walrus

    does it has hspa+ ???

    • somebody

      unlikely

  • efjay

    This isnt for T-Mobile US, it’s for Europe.

    • xitaxuta

      if so.. why would they put this in the last sentence?

      “So that makes a total of three Windows Phone
      7 handsets you can choose from, the HTC HD7, the Dell Venue Pro, and the HTC 7 Mozart. Which one will you choose? Sound off in the comments!”

    • Omeer

      I’m so glad you’re wrong. http://gizmodo.com/5660697/htcs-7-mozart-is-their-smallest-wp7-phone-at-37+inches

      According to this it’s exclusive to T-mo and Orange in the UK starting October 21st and exclusive T-mo USA November 7th.

    • Kickstar13
      • efjay

        As noted a few posts above, there is no mention of the Mozart on the official list of phones, so what makes anyone thing gizmodo is right? Plus we have already seen official T-Mobile press releases for the Dell and HD7 but no mention of the Mozart. Wouldnt be the first time a blog has posted incorrect information.

        http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2010/oct10/10-11MSWP7PR.mspx

      • efjay

        Plus the date giz states is the launch date is Nov 7, one day before its offically supposed to be available in the US. Definitely sounding incorrect to me.

  • I don’t know which phone I’ll get but I will be moving to WP7 for my first smart phone. If I had to decide today it would be the Mozart. Copy and Paste is coming and I can deal with it. Thank you T-Mobile for getting it right. WP7 os does it the way I want it. Stock is streamlined across all carriers. If I customize and mess up I can get support from Microsoft to fix it. Storage is not a problem it is in the cloud. No complicated set up for music like itunes. No complaints from me. The thing I like the best is you can get it from Amazon.

    Stay Thirsty my friends.

  • Omeer

    T-mo did good, very very good choosing these three handsets. They’re all beautiful and professional looking especially this one. The Mozart will definitely be my WP7 device. If T-mo can only up the ante on their Android devices now I’d be one happy customer. The G2 is great but I wish it looked like Verizon’s Lexicon instead. The MYTHD has great specs but I wish it resembled the Desire HD instead of that childish/toy appearance.

  • tato22

    there nice phones but i wont buy anything with windows in it not worth it at all

    • Lumic

      iPerson mad at Apple not replacing his Mac’s screen with 15 dead pixels.

  • Galen20K

    Wow T-Mobile, just WOW! And this is coming from a die hard Android fan. Seriously Sweet Hardware Magenta, Best of the Bunch. Good job on locking the exclusives! keep it up!

  • phastdriver

    Hands down, this is the Phone to get of the three.

    But I’m intrigued with the FCC posting of the Windows Phone PD29110 that maybe coming to Tmobile, when will this phone make an appearance?

  • Yeah, I’m a major Android fan, but I gotta admit…Windows Phone 7 looks very impressive, and the hardware looks awesome. I don’t think it’ll pull me away from Android, but I really can’t wait to try it in person. It looks really great.

  • blazinn831

    yay good job t-mobile…. these phones are lookin pretty sweet, looks like i will be sporting a wp7 phone and a G2!!!!!! thanx to t-mobile for starting to step it up… they are going in the right direction finally!!!!!

  • Claude

    I wonder if version 7 of WinMob is going to crash as much as previous versions. I hope they got that fixed because I like these 3 new WP7.

  • saurabh

    Dell Venue Pro!!!!!!!!!

  • kev123

    been awhile since i been on i was almost excited but after a 4.3 inch phone i cant go low

  • yahooooooo

    Wow, these phone make me ditch the iphone 4!!! I am still on 30 day period with ATT. Does anybody know how the process works to return the iphone and transfer the number to T-Mobile?

    • Sean J.

      return through the venue you purchased it… e.g. Purchased at store- return to store. Purchased online- call Cust Care and ask for waybill to return.

    • Bimmerz

      Go to Tmobile (storefront, call or online) before you leave AT&T, and they will port your number for you. If you want to keep your number, do not turn off service with AT&T first, otherwise you’ll lose your number.

      Do this before your 30-days are up (like day 26 or 27), because it can take up to 48 hours for porting to go through (usually much less). Then go to AT&T and return your iPhone.

  • Acaciastrain

    Seriously….is any other carrier coming out with phones this awesome like tmo is? The G2 then mytouch HD then the 3 WP7 phones.

    I don’t follow any other carrier blogs so I’m not sure but if not then tmo is seriously kicking ass right now. Now we just need some marketing.

  • This is going to be available in Europe and Asia-Pacific but not U.S.

  • Sean J.

    Pretty sure this is no different than the HD2-

    Sorry- no faith in Windows OS since EVERY ONE HAS FAILED… Sorry to be a Windows OS Hater- but feel free to show me wrong!

    • Yyevo

      Obvious troll is obvious.

      Nothing to see here, move along.

  • blah

    Look I actually wanted a WP7 device, but the hardware is abysmal. WHY ARE THEY ALL USING PROCESSORS FROM 2008!!! I DON’T UNDERSTAND!!! I’m definitely getting the MTHD now… I would even settle for a WP7 device if at least one of them had a ffc!

    • chrisrj28

      @Blah

      At what point was the QSD8250 available in 2008? I could have sworn the the G1 launched then with the old Arm7 528mhz processor so let’s get it straight. And you sound like one of the fad catchers, the Iphone made something popular that has long been available on other phones but since shiny Apple has it now everyone wants it. How often do you think you will actually use it seeing as how most phones still don’t have it. Do you chat online a lot?

      • somebody

        i hate to agree with guy up top but he has a point. I was truly looking foreward to getting a wp7 phone but the phones that are comming out while pretty, dont really have much going for them.

        the chips are old snapdragons ( i think same one in hd2 )
        no hspa+ — wtf……
        camara is still 5mp ( mozart with 8 and it might not come to us )

        i just dont see a point in buying any one these phones except maybe mozart…

  • Rilesman

    I applaud T-Mobile for bringing 3 phones.

    For a complete win they now only need to do the following (coordination with manufacturers of course)

    1) Upgrade to HSPA+ (same as AT&T as they start rolling out their upgrades)
    2) a full size Qwerty Keyboard like the future Sprint HTC 7 Pro

  • not4sakn

    What’s sad is behind all the nice hardware, impressive specs and sex appeal…its windows and windows sucks. Period!

    Working in Tmo Retail I’ve seen more issues with winmo phones than anything. Blackberry runs a close second but the notorious bugs, constant lag and freezing is consistant with winmo phones and ill never own one regardless of the specs because the software cripples them.

    • efjay

      Sage words, O wise one, shame it has no relevance here since this is a completely new OS and countless videos have shown it to be smooth, fast and lag free. But keep sipping on the haterade, good for the skin!

      • not4sakn

        While windows 7 is new and supposedly improved, every version of windows to date has been full of issues and I’m sure this will follow suit. Give it time grasshopper.

      • Lumic

        @not4sakn It’s not even called Windows 7, get it right randy.

        Instead of stating anecdotal evidence, how about you do some research about the changes in WP7?

    • cirrob

      why are you such a moron? cant you read? do your eyes work? havent you seen any of the text associated with EVERY EINGLE POST OR NEWS ARTICLE RELATED TO WP7? this is NOT WM. again NOT windows mobile. its a new os completely. you are a douche. making comparisons of this os to wm is like comparing a mac os to windows os… completely different. so read an article and quit just looking at the pictures you tool.

      jeeze stupid people piss me off. it angers me that you are breathing my air. please stop.

  • Can someone please tell T-Mobile that they messed up by letting Sprint have the exclusivity on the HTC 7 Pro. They messed up big time and they let us down. :-)

    • Bimmerz

      Not surprising, after all Sprint got the “Pro” version of the Galaxy S line too.

  • carlos

    xenon flash, 720p recording and the surround sound stuff are really, really pulling me in. add to that i’m super excited to see how windows 7 runs.

    now its just a matter of saving up cash…hmmm…

  • alex

    Sweet looking phones..the mozart and lightning are very tempting…

  • Yyevo

    Just placed my order for the G2 this weekend. The Mozart is very tempting as is the Dell.

    I’ll wait a while and let the ecosystem catch up with Android before I go to Win 7. But this is a very nice opening salvo from MS.

  • MJ

    Wow, T-Mobile does need to be commended. This is a large launch and is better than anything on AT&Trash.

  • alex

    front facing camera please!!!!!!

  • Kristen

    It looks liek on engadget mobile its saying that the Mozart will only be for Orange and TMO UK not for Tmo USA.
    :(

    • threetee14

      what a huge bummer for me…. this was the only WP7 that i really wanted.. perfect size too.

  • MC

    hspa+?

  • JM

    This information is misleading; the HTC 7 Mozart is not being released to T-Mobile USA on November 7th. According to Cnet and Gizmodo, the only two WP7 phones being released to this carrier are the HTC HD7 and the Dell Venue Pro. Please correct this mistake! I was disappointed to find this information inaccurate!

    • David, Managing Editor

      Hey JM, I’ve taken care of that!

      • JM

        Thanks! At any rate, I’m looking forward to this OS and the HTC HD7 – looks like a promising device! Cheers!

    • TheDude

      According to GIZMODO it’s also coming to the US. Tmonews got it off of the incorrect gizmodo article (check the source link)

  • TangoPapa

    here’s my prediction…. TMO will launch these 3 Win7 phones, and they’ll have decent success and turn out to be pretty practical for todays business/commercial user. Tmo will have 1 to 2 commercials run on various cable networks for about 2 weeks plus do google ads for another 3-4 weeks.

    Verizon will follow suit and ask HTC to make them an even better WIN7 phone that will absolutely demolish others. They will market it as the beast of all beast and the Windows savior. Huge influx coming in from verizon will then force AT&T and Sprint to follow with their own variants of Win7.

    During this time span, TMO will get blasted for not keeping up with the competition and then all of a sudden TMO will release the first dual processor Android 3.0 made by HTC sometime in 2011. By then HSPA+ will be fully launched nationwide and full marketing promo begins however at that very same moment Verizon counters with its own variant of the dual processor Android and blitz’s television. Shortly after doing so Verizon announces its Apple Iphone4 evolution for verizon. Verizon still 1, AT&T is 2 with a very close gap to #3 who now becomes Tmobile. Sprint’s users have begun leaving their clogged network for the other 3 as their EVO contracts are now expired.

    The end.

  • Saintory

    I don’t think any WP7 other than the HD7 is going to be available on T-Mobile USA. Both Engadget and Ars Technica are reporting Mozart will only be available outside the USA.

    Ars via http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/2010/10/microsoft-carriers-announce-windows-phone-7-hardware.ars :
    “Outside the US, WP7 users will also have a choice between the HTC 7 Trophy and the HTC 7 Mozart. The Trophy gets a 3.8″ display, 5MP camera with LED flash, and plastic body, while the Mozart has a 3.7″ display, an 8MP camera with xenon flash, and an all-aluminum unibody.”

    Engadget via http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/11/windows-phone-7-handsets-the-tale-of-the-tape/ :
    7 Mozart: Orange (France and UK), Deutsche Telekom, Telstra (Australia)

    Even T-Mobile USA has announced only the HD7 (see http://press.t-mobile.com/articles/HTC-HD7). There is no other announcement about any other WP7 from T-Mobile USA.

    Anyone got any official sources cited? I’m inclined to believe Ars and Engadget as being correct and that the T on 7 Mozart is for Deutsche Telekom.

  • Claude

    Damn! This is the one I had my eyes on. And now it may only be going to T-Mobile UK. I am a little disappointed.

  • Serotheo

    Aha, I know what I want as my WinPho7 Device, Perfect sized screen, still big, nice camera, and great sound on this thing (I will have to decide which feels better in the hand this or HD7!)

    As for Android.. I can’t for the the MyTouch HD/the next big HTC handset on T-mobile in January

  • mike

    I will give wp7 a shot maybe just the 14 day test drive

  • Cisco

    I was really looking forward to this phone. Now it turns out that this is only announced for the uk….I’m disappointed…yet again. :'(

    • somebody

      im pretty sure the mozart = uk
      shubert= us

      i was under the impression that these were the same phone..

      • jordannn

        thats exactly what I was thinking

  • MANNNNN….. that sucks…… I was waiting for this phone to come out along with the giant hd3/7 I like the hd3 but my hd2 already feels too big at times when in my pocket so I was waiting for the Mozart…..Now does anybody know whether or not this phone sold in the UK will work the same here in the US? because if it does I will buy it online.. any info will be appreciated,
    thanks

  • LuvMyGreenRobot

    It’s not confirmed yet that it won’t be available in the US, so let’s hope we get it!

    • Cisco

      Good point. Here’s hoping it comes to the US. *fingers crossed*

      • JoeJoe

        Yeah, I hope this winds up with T-Mobile USA. Otherwise, I’ll head back to AT&T.

  • somebody

    i was under the impression that Mozart = tmobil uk shubert = tmobil us

    -both being the same phone…

    anyone have info on this
