Full specs of the HTC HD7 confirm T-Mobile frequencies, HTC Sense widgets
We are posting the specs shot below, for you to explore every nook and cranny of the phone, before it gets officially announced. For starters, it supports T-Mobile's 1700MHz frequency, so it can arrive on Big Magenta as it is, although the leak looks like it belongs to an European version.
The HTC HD7 should be powered by Qualcomm's regular QSD8250 Snapdragon, running at 1GHz, which is a bit of a bummer, considering the 1230mAh battery. This chipset is made with the 65nm process, unlike the newer 45nm Snapdragons in the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire Z. When we add the 4.3" regular LCD screen, we would be only praying that the battery gets us through the day.
In the software part HTC confirms once again that it will be customizing the Windows Phone 7 interface somewhat. Some old school HTC Sense UI widgets will be present on the HD7, as well as new ones, like a ToDo widget. It is anyone's guess if that means full-blown HTC Sense over the WP7 interface - for now it looks like just widgets, which is the safer way to go.
What do you all think - underwhelming, considering the expectations, fake, or just about right for a WP7 handset?

Yeah, compared to what's out there now, this phone doesn't have a leg to stand on as far as hardware goes. Hopefully, the new OS makes it shine. Maybe it will be updated when it hits CDMA networks.

I'm not that upset since it will be relegated to T-Mobile for now in the US. When WP7 hits CDMA in 8 months, there will be much better offerings Stateside!

hopefully the spec sheet is off. i really dont think they would just repackage a 7 month old HD2 (when it comes out) with windows 7. None of HTCs phones comming out are still using the regular snapdragon from what ive seen, so i'm inclined to not believe it. It would also be rediculous to launch a new OS on old hardware. They need to come out swinging for the fences to regain lost customers and these specs are not it. I really doubt these are real specs. If it is, its total fail on HTC's part.. unless windows7 is such a power sipping OS that it gets away with it... but somehow i doubt it.
