Key Differences

  • Background: Several Windows Phone 7 devices will be released over the next few weeks, representing a range of designs and operating concepts. Two interesting devices are the HTC HD7 and the Dell Venue Pro, which feature quite different operational paradigms while maintaining exceptional usability and performance. The centerpiece of the HTC HD7 experience is its 4.3-inch LCD screen, currently the largest screen available on any cell phone. (This same 4.3-inch screen is used on a couple different HTC models of cell phones, such as the Evo and the HD2.) All typing and interaction with the HD7 is done on the screen, using its virtual QWERTY keyboard and touch sensitivity. The Dell Venue Pro uses a 4.1-inch AMOLED screen — still large for a cell phone — and also an actual QWERTY keyboard that slides vertically from the unit. Representing two different ways to interact with a mobile device, the HTC HD7 and the Dell Venue Pro are worth comparing side by side.
  • Operating System: Both the Dell Venue Pro and HTC HD7 run on Windows Phone 7, which was developed by Microsoft. A clean break from the previous Windows mobile operating systems from Microsoft, Windows Phone 7 promises a simple and intuitive way to interact with both work and personal requirements.
  • Availability: The HTC HD7 starts shipping on November 8, 2010, and the Dell Venue Pro will ship shortly afterward.
