Being a relatively new player in the mobile OS terrain, the Windows Phone 7 platform is undoubtedly being pushed to cover as much ground as possible in order to catch up to rivals. The Indian launch of the HTC HD7 handset has been followed by another toothsome serving on the said platform. Tata Docomo will start offering Windows Phone 7 fans across India the HTC 7 Mozart smartphone.
Microsoft’s homegrown mobile OS has always been promoted as a solution that lets people get more done in fewer steps than is usual while operating smartphones. The 3.7” WVGA touchscreen adorning the HTC 7 Mozart displays a Hub and Tile interface for quick access to information. Bing and Office are touted to be as easily accessible on the handset as Pictures, People, Games, Music & Video. Additionally, the screen is of the class that is designed to accommodate pinch-to-zoom finger gestures.
“When we launched brand Tata Docomo last year, we had promised our subscribers that we would bring to them the best products and service-products, that will be innovative and pioneering and which would offer convenience and simplicity. Living up to that promise, we are launching the HTC 7 Mozart with the new Windows Phone 7 loaded on. This device, powered by our world class 3G network will deliver a truly enriching experience for the consumer. We will continue working together with HTC to launch more innovative mobile offerings for Indian consumers,” cited Sunil Tandon, Head of Mobility Services and Device Management, Tata Teleservices.
Ajay Sharma, Country Head of HTC India, commented, “The HTC 7 Mozart is a great piece of craftsmanship with some of the most advanced features and perfectly underlines HTC’s focus on raising the bar in mobile phone innovation and design. With its stunning looks, great features and the new Windows Phone 7 experience, we are positive that the HTC 7 Mozart will be a great success in India, and are extremely happy to partner Tata Docomo in bringing the phone here.”
This HTC phone also embeds an 8MP AF camera featuring Xenon flash and 720p HD video capturing options. Snap-happy users get to touch up the subject mood in pictures by employing in-built scenes such as portrait, landscape and candlelight. For those who’ve taken a hint from the name, the handset is crafted to produce good quality virtual surround sound and allow for phone-to-PC syncing with the Zune incorporation. All of this technology fits itself into a frame built from just one piece of anodized aluminum with a unibody design aesthetic.
The HTC 7 Mozart is going to hit the market at around Rs. 26,490 through HTC resellers across India. It will be proffered to Tata Docomo subscribers with a special data offer, the specifics of which have not been given a mention as yet.
