First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

HTC is one of three mobile phone manufacturers to partner with Microsoft for the launch of Windows Phone 7, the company's new mobile operating system. Exclusive to Telstra, the HTC 7 Mozart comes equipped with a 3.7in SLCD display and an 8-megapixel camera. It is also the only Windows Phone 7 device to feature a Xenon flash.
The HTC 7 Mozart is crafted from a single piece of brushed aluminium; a similar design to the Android-powered HTC Legend and the upcoming HTC Desire HD. Like all HTC phones that run the Windows Phone 7 operating system, the 7 Mozart has HTC Hub, a software portal that provides access to a number of apps including weather, a photo enhancer, a sound enhancer, notes and stocks.
The HTC 7 Mozart is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. It has 8GB of internal memory, 576MB RAM and weighs 130g. Like all Windows Phone 7 devices, it lacks external storage, so there is no microSD card slot for extra memory.
The HTC 7 Mozart records 720p HD video, and has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a G-sensor (gyroscope), ambient light sensor and built-in GPS. It will be available exclusively through Telstra from 21 October for $0 upfront on Telstra's $49 cap plan over 24 months.
