HTC Windows Phone 7 Gold Smartphone To Go Live In November

Details have emerged online about the first Windows Phone that will come from HTC for nearly a year and has been aptly name Gold.

According to mobile news website Omio, the phone should be out by November 2010, which corresponds to the roadmap that Microsoft has for the platform and is just in time for the Christmas rush.

The phone has already been identified back at the beginning of June as one which would be available on Sprint and would be dual-mode CDMA and GSM model, which would mean a swift worldwide release without the usual US/RoW delay.

We expect the Gold to be a Windows-ified version of the HTC Scorpion, which was first spotted back in February 2010.

The latter will apparently be released with a dual core Cortex A8 processor running at 1.5GHz and a screen resolution of 240PPI, significantly lower than the iPhone 4's 326PPI.

Interestingly, the launch of HTC Gold in November could leave us salivating with a contest between Android OS 3.0 Gingerbread (also scheduled to be launched in October) and Microsoft Windows Phone 7, both on a dual core platform.
