HTC Mozart, a phone based on Windows Phone 7, has appeared on HTC India website and Flipkart. HTC, true to its motto of Quietly Brilliant, is launching the phones quietly but quickly. HTC Mozart’s price is not out yet, but based on some calculations it should be at Rs. 25999. HTC Mozart is a mix of few of the previous phones launched by HTC. Think of it this way, if you mix all the three existing phones of HTC (Desire, HD7 and Desire HD) you will end up with HTC Mozart.
HTC Mozart has a 3.7 inch Super LCD, capacitive screen with 480×800 screen resolution (just like HTC Desire). It runs Windows Phone 7 (just like HTC HD7). It has a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Mozart has a 8 GB in-built memory and it probably cannot be expanded any further (HTC HD7 had 16 GB on-board). Mozart has 576 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM. A 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash can record 720p HD videos.
Mozart has a talk time of 4 hours, the lowest and a standby time of just 5 days. The battery life is very low and I can only think of the Xenon flash to suck out life out of Mozart. There isn’t any new hardware.
All the good stuff is on board – FM Radio, Mini-USB, 3G, Bluetooth and GPS.
What HTC has done is, it took HTC Desire, jacked up the internal memory to 8GB and replaced the 5 megapixel camera with a 8 megapixel camera and Xenon Flash. And finally it took the Android out and loaded Windows Phone 7. You can think of HTC Mozart as a HTC Desire with HD recording, running Windows with 3.7 inch screen and reduced battery life.
