As the release date of Windows Phone 8 looms, retailers and handset manufacturers are clearing out existing stocks of Windows Phone 7.5 handsets. The latest one is the HTC 7 Mozart, sold by Phones4U for a mere £99.95, with a compulsory £10 top-up.
Like all other mainstream Windows Phone 7.5 devices, it comes with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, 512MB of RAM and a screen with a 800 x 480 pixels resolution (on a 3.7in Super LCD model).
Other features include 8GB of on-board storage (without a microSD card slot), an 8-megapixel rear camera with 720p HD video capture and flash, Dolby mobile sound technology, GPS and Wi-Fi, in an aluminium unibody casing. There is also the full array of Microsoft and HTC services including Zune, Office, Xbox Live as HTC Hub.
The phone, which was launched towards the end of 2010, is a minor improvement on the HTC 7 Trophy – which was the first Windows Phone 7 mobile from HTC. Like all other current Windows Phone handsets, it won't be upgradable to Windows Phone 8.
