Modest update for HTC HD7

Modest update for HTC HD7HTC has unveiled a new-ish version of its existing HTC HD7. In keeping with their recent convention of bunging an “S” on the end of the name, the new phone will be called the HTC HD7S. That's quite the mouthful.

Other than a new Super LCD screen, the specs are identical. It has a meaty 4.3in display, 16GB of on-board storage, a 5MP shooter and 1GHz processor. Oh, and it’ll also have copy-and-paste out of the box. Imagine the possibilities.

The original HTC HD7 helped launch Windows Phone 7 last October. In the UK, it has been available exclusively from O2.

It remains to be seen if we’ll see the HTC HD7S over here; the press release is largely AT&T-focused. Previously it was a T-Mobile exclusive in the States.

HTC cites the “more than 10,000 applications available for download from Windows Marketplace” as a key selling point. I’m thinking the majority of app fans will happily stick with Android or iOS. They have an estimated 200,000 and 300,000 apps respectively.

Still, it looks like a nice little – or more accurately, big – phone.
