T-Mobile is no longer carrying the beloved HTC HD7
When Windows Phone first came to market, the HTC HD7 quickly captured the attention of consumers with its larger than life presence, but more importantly, it helped showcase the potential of Microsoft’s mobile platform. Looking back, it’s rather difficult to say how the HTC HD7 impacted the scene, especially when it was going up against other things like the Samsung Focus and Dell Venue Pro.

Well, the time has finally arrived – the handset is no longer being carried by T-Mobile USA. We know, it’s indeed a sad moment, but it’s the inevitable reality that all smartphones endure in the end, but at least it had a good ride. However, if you still long for it, there’s always the HTC HD7S, a slightly improved device packing that oh-so lovable S-LCD display instead. Even better, there’s the HTC Titan that’s truly regarded as a contemporary giant in the Windows Phone landscape right now.

However, now that this massively large high-end handset is no more, that means consumers only have the HTC Titan or Samsung Focus S to choose from. For T-Mobile, this effectively means that the HTC Radar 4G is only going to be their sole option – well, that’s until when the Nokia Lumia 710 lands, which isn’t until next year unfortunately.

In any event, we bid adieu to the HTC HD7, a lovable and once polarizing device in the Windows Phone community – may it live forever in our memories! Hey, at least it has Mango now.

hopefully making room for an "enhanced" Titan or Titan 2 for Magenta to fill the High end Windows Phone slot this is leaving.

Rumors of Titan with beats audio. If exist, could be for Tmo but there are also currents of 3 WP going to sprint?

So sad. Such a sexy phone marred by a less than average screen quality. They need to bring the Titan over to T-Mobile or keep the design of the HD7 with the S-LCD screen and a 1.3mp front facing camera. That would be a welcomed treat to T-Mobile customers who want a little more than the Radar 4g and Lumia 710.

HD7 had a lot of potiental, but microsoft took too long to get mango out, thus the HD7 died off. The lumia and radar will do a fine job replacing it.

The TITAN is a beast, Smooth, beautiful WP7.5, sleek slim hardware, and that BIG beautiful screen (I heard gripes about the resolution 800x480, but it looked sharp and vibrant when I played with it), I have a RAZR on Verizon, but I'm saving for a TITAN, I'll be buying it straight up, and using it as a Media player, but might go with a pay as you go plan W/ATT (we'll see) Yes, it's THAT good!

No Titan, no focus S, no lumia 800, no nothing for Tmo, but a funeral for the HD7.

I'm sure the genius executives at T-Mobile thought, months back, "Oh - don't worry about filling the product pipeline...we'll all be millionaires from the AT&T merger by then" So now they have nothing exciting coming and I, for one, will jump carrier to whoever gets the Nokia 900.

I'll be waiting to see where the 3rd generation WP go. I too is considering moving away from tmo. Just because I'm a tmo customer doesn't mean they have the right to look down at me and claim I'm another "poor" chap on a budget.

I saw a guy on the web holding and using a Nokia lumia 900 it has a 4.3 amoled screen and if it has a a front facing camera then man oh man. This is the one everybody has been looking for Nokia to bring to the Market place. What a sweet Windows 7.5 mango smart phone for the T-mobile company to have to Replace the HD7. I predict the Nokia 900 to be the Best of the Best Windows phone 7.5 mango smart phone out there. It will sell like hot cakes. People who never thought about Windows smart phones will admire this smart phone wow I am not into Andriod smart phones but if Nokia made an androd variation of this smart phone they would make a fortune selling them to Andriod fans. Oh well that's life!
