HTC launches 7 Mozart in India for Rs 26,490

3 Jan

HTC has today launched its second Windows Phone 7 smartphone in India – the 7 Mozart. We had earlier reported that HTC will launch the HD7 and the 7 Mozart in India in December. The HD7 was released last week for Rs 29,990.

The 7 Mozart has been launched with Tata DoCoMo for Rs 26,490. Tata DoCoMo subscribers will get some special data offer but the press release does not mention any details of this offer.

On the specs front, the Mozart 7 has a 3.7-inch WVGA display, an 8.0 MP camera with XENON flash that can shoot videos in 720p HD resolution, 8 GB of internal memory and a 1 GHz processor.

However, like the HD7, there is a catch. Microsoft has not launched Windows Phone 7 (the OS) in India yet so many features like XBOX Live support and Windows Marketplace are not available in India at the moment. Since HTC jumped the gun, in all likelihood, you’d end up using these Windows Phone 7 devices in India for calls, text messages, multimedia and browsing the Internet. Which is really a shame as the smartphone can do much more than that.

Having said that, many users might find the 7 Mozart as a great multimedia smartphone, especially considering the price point. Windows Phone 7 as an OS is much more usable than Symbian and the UI is more refined than Android. Yes, it does not multitask at the moment, but Microsoft is expected to launch an update soon (and we hear that all current Windows Phone 7 devices will be updated, unlike Android where the manufacturer decides which device gets an update and when). This update will bring both copy/paste and multitasking to the table.

However, if you still want Android (don’t get us wrong, we are die-hard Android users ourselves), HTC should be officially launching the Desire Z and the Desire HD in India any day now (we hear that these smartphones are already making their way to some retailers). So there is still some great gear coming up from the Taiwanese smartphone giant.

HTC Desire Z launching in India on Jan 3 for Rs 29,699?

31 Dec

Online retailer, Flipkart is on a roll these days. After revealing the India launch of the HTC HD7, 7 Mozart and Desire HD, it now claims that the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer will also launch the Desire Z on January 3! The site lists the MRP for the Desire Z as Rs 29,699 and is offering it for Rs 25,799.

The Desire Z runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) and sports a 3.7-inch WVGA display. The biggest draw, however, is its slide-out (hinge ‘Z’ slide, if we may) QWERTY keypad. We believe it will be a great buy at that price and expect both the Desire Z and Desire HD to do well in India. Now time for its specs:
