Out of all the Windows Phone 7 launch partners, HTC’s obviously been the most hard-working but which of the five launch devices is the Taiwanese company’s best work?
Well, there’s no such thing as a perfect phone, but we dare say the 7 Mozart’s the most stylish out of the lot. Not convinced? Flip the phone around and you’ll see its two main selling points: its aluminum unibody construction (as applied on the Nexus One and Legend), and its 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash (as opposed to 5 megapixels with LED flash on the other WP7 devices).
In addition to the handsome unibody chassis and the 8 megapixel camera (with Xenon flash), there’s also the now-common 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, along with a sharp 3.7-inch SLCD (with better color reproduction and viewing angle than the HD7’s) and 8GB storage capacity.
On the front there are three backlit capacitive buttons below the screen, whereas above the screen you see a shiny grill for the earpiece plus an LED indicator underneath. The remaining buttons — all in matte silver — are located on the sides: volume rocker on the left, power button at the top (where the 3.5mm headphone jack resides as well), and the two-stage camera button at the bottom right.
Unless you’ve been hiding in a cave over the last few months, you should be well aware that Microsoft’s been laying some serious ground rules for strictly no skinning on WP7, which means companies like HTC can’t port a similar experience from their Android or even Windows Mobile 6 offerings. To get around this, HTC came up with the HTC Hub app. Now, to be brutally honest, this is hardly a replacement for Sense; rather than a skin or even a widget, the Hub’s more like a weather app stuffed with a portal to a handful of HTC apps.
How to Unlock the New Breed of HTC Phones with Windows Mobile OS
Many Experienced Unlocking professionals will know that Orange & other networks networks around the world have found ways to over come the entering of unlock codes in their phones by their customisation software that they load on to the phones and restrict the entering of unlocking codes.
Orange in the UK started this back when it released its HTC Hero and Tattoo range of htc smart phones. What they did is to create an extra subroutine in Branded version of the HTC Flashes/ROMS and loaded them on to the locked HTC phones.
Even if users obtained an unlock code by reading the code via special software via cables or by using remote imei unlocking services they could not unlock the phone as even after entering the code it would not ask you again and again for the code till you went bananas.
As soon soon as the unlock code was entered the HTC phone again asked the unlock code as it was programmed to do by the networks who purchased them. Months passed by non solution was to be found for the phone and users were restricted to the one network the phone was locked on to.
As time passed on users were loosing money on a daily basis from unlock code suppliers on the web as refunds were not being supplied after unlock codes failed to work.
Then some forum members learnt how to create a Gold card for their HTC phone which allows CID unlocking which is a method to be able to de brand your phone and flash it to a non network operator customised menu system. In other words the software on the phone after flashing can remove all operator logo and customisations.
This then allowed the use of unlock codes agian only for some models but creating a gold card and flashing a new ROM image was not childs play and many ended up bricking their phones trying.
