So big new over at BGR yesterday seems that HTC’s Big Sep 1st will not have anything to do with the most anticipated HTC Puccini Tablet. Seems that Windows Phone Mango will be the star of the event Sep 1st. HTC Eternity and HTC Omega will be the devices that are going to be showed off. HTC Eternity will support a 3.7 inch screen and will be AT&T bound, and the HTC Omega will support a 4.5 inch screen and will be T-Mobile bound. Now Windows Mango doesn’t sound as exciting as 10 inch Tab from HTC but hey we can’t complain over here HTC makes great devices so whatever Sep 1st holds we know it will be tough to not like. Now usually HTC is constantly making a new Android device every other month or so it seems like, so a break in the action to see some new Windows Phones will be a nice touch.
If you thought that the Samsung Infuse and it's 4.5 inch display was insane, check out this render of the alleged HTC Eternity. It's a Windows Phone that supposedly featured a mammoth 4.7 inch WCGA Super LCD screen. Ri-donk-u-lous. Do any of the other specs even matter?
Way back in the way back of December 2010 I wrote a post detailing the things I hoped to see from HTC in the new year. Well, it's been six months since that post aired, so it's time for us to take a look and see exactly how HTC has fared. As you'll notice, some things have come true, some things haven't (yet).
US patent number 7,966,578 is so strong that it basically gives the company ownership of capacitive multitouch technology, tech that has been emulated in Android, Windows Phone 7 and webOS by scores of manufacturers. It means that now has leverage to bully other smartphone manufacturers around.
Look: it's Windows Phone 7 Mango running on the HTC HD7! Check it out: linked email accounts, crazy dancing Xbox Live avatars, isn't it great? There's nothing new in the video, unless you count the fact that it's an HD7 running Mango. That we've never seen before.
The Windows Phone 7 ads feel like a chore, they feel scattershot and they don't have a clear message. That is why people aren't buying Windows Phones. If the ads were good people would be plowing down the doors demanding these devices. They're not demanding them because the ads suck.
If you want to save money on your next AT&T Windows Phone, Best Buy is putting the HTC HD7S on sale. If you head over to their website right now you can get the 4.3 inch slate device for just $49.99 with a new two-year contract. That's a full $150 off the standard price of the phone, so it's quite a steal.
US Cellular announced plans to launch four more HTC devices this year. The carrier, which will launch 8 smartphones, two tablets and 4G LTE devices, will be getting a 7-inch HTC tablet (which is more than likely to be a re-branded HTC Flyer), a Windows Phone 7 device and two HTC Android phones.
Windows Phone 7's biggest screen has finally landed on AT&T: the HTC HD7S is officially on sale. The device, the follow up to the massively popular Windows Mobile powered-HTC HD2, went on sale yesterday with a contract price of $199.99.
