The HTC HD7 delivers GPS functionality with access to turn-by-turn navigation from TeleNav GPS Navigator, 8 or 16 GB of internal memory, a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED flash, and HD 720p video recording. Other features include Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, and a 1230 mAh battery for extended use while on the go.

Viva offered 2 GB data with every phone sold to customers with its high speed 3G technology.

“We are delighted to be the first operator in Bahrain to deliver the Windows Mobile 7 operating system that utilises the innovations of Microsoft to increase business communications capabilities and maximise the entertainment experience of smartphones,” said Andrew Hanna, chief commercial officer of Viva.

The Windows Phone 7 operating system has been carefully crafted to help users get more done in fewer steps with a unique Hub and Tile interface. Instead of the common icon displays on the screen, Windows Phone 7 uses Live Tiles, which allow one to find out what’s going on, what’s happening next, and what one has missed without having to open an application.

Windows Phone 7 also integrates with many popular Microsoft services such as Xbox LIVE, Windows Live, Bing, and Zune.

In addition to Internet Explorer Mobile 8 for full HTML Web browsing, the HTC HD7 also includes fully integrated Microsoft Exchange e-mail and calendar as well as the Microsoft Office Hub, which offers mobile versions of popular productivity programs, including Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, OneNote, and SharePoint Workspace Mobile.

The launch of the HTC HD7 is the first step in the partnership between VIVA and Microsoft which will bring better compatibility and connectivity to their workspace as well as all the aspects of social media and gaming. The partnership will also bring forth further Windows Phone 7 powered devices to the market.

The device, priced at BD99, will be packaged with a free data bundle of 2GB for a period of two years. The device will be available with the Postpaid BD20 and BD30 packages.-
