T-Mobile HTC HD7 Software Tour (Video)
The T-Mobile version of the HTC HD7 comes with a few bundled apps that were bundled special for the carrier. Unfortunately we’re not talking about a huge amount of innovation. You get the T-Mobile Family Room app which will let you connect family members with T-Mobile branded Windows Phone 7 devices in order to share notes and calendars. There’s also the TeleNav GPS navigation program which is similar to the one we’ve seen on AT&T branded Windows Phone 7s. You’ve also got “T-Mobile TV” which is basically a rebrand of the Mobi-TV app for Windows Phone 7. The premium T-Mobile TV channels will cost you an extra $10 per month, but if you cancel your trial subscription, you’ll still have a few free channels to watch. Lastly, from the HTC Hub, you can actually download another T-Mobile application called “My Account” this gives you easy access to your phone service stats such as how many minutes and text messages you’ve used so far during the billing cycle.
Other than that, T-Mobile has just bundled a couple more apps that anyone can download from the Marketplace. Netflix and Slacker will show up as defaults on your start screen, but they (and any of the other T-Mobile customizations) are easily removable if you so desire.
