HTC’s Take on WP7, And Oh My, it is Beautiful!

HTC Hub on WP7

If this turns out to be real, I think HTC have got themselves an instant hit. As blog MobilityDigest have managed to grab hold of and post a video of what appears to be a running version of HTC’s implementation of Windows Phone 7. Codenamed, the HTC Portal, it is supposed similar to HTC Sense that is running on it’s Android phones, but not as customised. WP7 still has all the tiles that we are used to, but now we have some new gorgeous eye candy with HTC’s take on it. Such as the┬áversions of the notes app, stocks app and the weather app. One thing I’m kinda confused about though, is the flower petal app. Not really sure why it is there, and pretty pointless in my opinion.

Microsoft has always said from when they announced WP7, that they were going to have tight control over the hardware and software. And ever since HTC was announced as a hardware partner, they’ve tried to customise WP7 heavily. But as you can clearly see, Microsoft has obviously stamped down on that, and limited HTC to the HTC Portal. Even though it may not be as customised as it is on Android, it is certainly prettier.

Anyway, check out the videos below and please excuse me, I need to go change my trousers.

Nokia C7 Demo Video


The Nokia C7 is the C6’s big brother. I say big as it is greater in size and in specs. The screen on this one is 3.5 inch and like the C6 it also has a 8mp camera and records 720P HD video.

We get 8GB of internal storage on the C7 compared to only 340mb on the C6 and as expected this one will carry a higher price tag.

Bluetooth 3 is also a difference that we find on the C7 to allow for quicker file transfers and of course we get Ovi Maps 3.0 which if you remember is free!

I hope the video does it justice as the screens on these new devices are pretty stunning.
