HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, has announced at a press conference in Cairo, the Egyptian launch of the HTC Desire HD and the first Microsoft Windows Phone 7 device, the HTC HD7.
The feature-packed HTC HD7 on the other hand comes with a 4.3 inch WVGA TFT capacitive touch screen, and is also equipped with a 5 mega pixel camera with dual LED flash with auto focus and HD video features. As for data transfer, the device is supported with 802.11 wifi, Bluetooth and an AGPS/GPS system.
Windows Phone 7 was designed to deliver a mobile experience that has the phone working better for people, bringing together the things they care about most and helping them to get things done faster. Windows Phone 7 breaks the current smartphone convention to help people quickly and easily find and consume data, information and services from the Web and applications. For example, the customizable Start screen with Live Tiles is a personal experience, showing people their own content. The Live Tiles come to life with real-time updates from the Web such as news, appointments or the status of friends. New Live Tiles can be easily created from whatever content a user wants, such as applications, websites and music. Windows Phone 7 devices also come pre-loaded with Microsoft Office Mobile, One Note Mobile and SharePoint.

We believe that the launch of the HTC Desire HD and HTC HD7 in this market will add further impetus to the smartphone segment, especially considering the new features and applications that these devices offer.
