New handset features the largest screen on a Windows Phone 7 device available in Canada

TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - HTC and Bell today announced the launch of the Windows Phone 7-powered HTC HD7 smartphone. Available exclusively from Bell on Canada's best network, the HTC HD7 promises to keep clients connected and entertained on the go by pairing rich mobile multimedia features with a 4.3-inch display — the largest screen available on a Windows Phone 7 smartphone in Canada.

"The HTC HD7 smartphone is the ultimate device to enjoy the outstanding entertainment services made possible by Windows Phone 7, with its huge, vibrant display and high quality sound," said Rick Babington, executive director, HTC Canada. "So whether you are using the built-in kickstand to watch your favourite video or stay connected with friends while on the go, the HTC HD7 brings it all together with a bold, sophisticated design."

"The combination of the HTC HD7's impressive screen, Bell Mobility's innovative mobile services and the speed and coverage offered by Canada's best network equals a mobile entertainment experience for our clients unlike any other," said Adel Bazerghi, Senior Vice President of Products at Bell Mobility. "With the launch of the HTC HD7, Bell Mobility continues to offer customers an unbeatable portfolio of the world's best smartphones."

An entertainment lover's dream, the HTC HD7 comes preloaded with the best Bell Mobility services such as Mobile TV featuring exclusive content from the NHL® alongside popular programming from BNN, CBC, Treehouse for kids and much more.  And because the HTC HD7 integrates easily with Zune, clients can enjoy their favourite music and videos in cinematic-style on the large 4.3" high-resolution screen, Dolby Mobile and SRS surround sound and built-in kickstand.

For those who refuse to compromise on their mobile gaming experience, the HTC HD7 also brings game play to life by harnessing the power of Xbox LIVE, and a 720p HD camcorder is perfect for capturing video with incredible quality and detail.

Windows Phone 7 delivers a simple, streamlined and integrated experience on the HTC HD7 through Windows Phone Hubs. Hubs bring together a related set of applications, services and content into a single view to simplify common tasks. With the exclusive HTC Hub, HTC is providing a unique series of applications and utilities that include weather and stock applications and a photo enhancer that enables a person to apply special effects before sharing photos with their friends.
