HTC 7 Surround
The most interesting is the new HTC 7 Surround, which is a horizontal slider, but instead of the usual keyboard, a real powerful and high-quality speaker appears in front of us.
The display diagonal is 3.8 ", which, together with kick-stand and 8 GB of internal memory, makes this smartphone quite unique in its class. At the moment, the Surround output is scheduled only in the USA and Canada, the European announcement has not yet been determined.
HTC 7 Trophy

HTC 7 Mozart
A distinctive feature of the HTC 7 Mozart is the unibody-aluminum body, as well as the 8 MPx camera with a xenon
flash. The diagonal of the screen is 3.7 ", the amount of internal memory - 8 GB. Mozart will be on sale on October 21 in the vast majority of European mobile operators (T-Mobile, Orange).
HTC 7 Pro
Finally, the HTC 7 Pro is a horizontal QWERTY slider, a successor to the HTC Touch Pro / Pro2. The diagonal of the screen is 3.6 ", and the amount of internal memory is 16 GB. 7 Pro is designed to work in networks of the CDMA operator Sprint. The GSM version is expected in early 2011.
The requirements of Microsoft are paramount, for this reason HTC Sense in WP7 models had to be abandoned. Now, all customization from HTC is available as a separate hub (the pictures are clickable):
