Windows Phone 7 fans in the US eagerly awaiting to get hold of the soon-to-launch HTC HD7 handsets can now begin pre-ordering the device from Wal-Mart. The popular discount retailer has announced that the new smartphone will be available at a price of $149 along with a T-Mobile contract. That is pretty cheap if you will realize that going through T-Mobile directly will cost the buyer an additional $50. Wal-Mart should be launching the device officially on November 8 – that’s just a week away.
You wouldn’t need this, but in case you are wondering about the specs and features on this new device, well, it comes with a 1GHz processor, a 512MB RAM, 720p video recording facility and a decent 16GB storage capacity. While the features are more or less on par with most other smartphones in the market today, do note that they are relatively better simply because the Windows Phone 7 OS is better optimised for performance which means a 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM work better on a WP7 phone than on another OS.
