    Up until now, the updates we've been seeing for Windows Phone 7 (or not seeing, for those still awaiting NoDo) have been from Microsoft and have eventually made their way to smartphones from all WP7 manufacturers. HTC may be about to step away from the pack, as there are reports right now of an update that's specific to only HTC models, currently going out to phones. There isn't any information available yet as to just what the update contains, but multiple users have reported receiving notification that it's available. Don't get too alarmed that we're looking at the start of Windows Phone ...

    While Microsoft has yet to open Windows Phone 7's compass API to app developers, handset manufacturers have access to more open programming tools. This allows HTC to release the first WP7 magnetic compass app with the HTC Arrive. The app was simultaneously introduced to the marketplace and it was quickly discovered to be compatible with other HTC WP7 devices. The app prompts you to wave your phone in a figure-eight to calibrate the sensor, then overlays a compass on a map of your current location. The map allows you to select a destination for walking directions, and rotates according to ...

    Microsoft has finally started to roll-out its first major Windows Phone 7 update a couple of hours ago but it might take over a week (or two) for the refresh to reach you if you have a carrier branded device. Chris Walsh, member of the ChevronWP7 team has posted a workaround on its blog letting carrier-branded HTC users emulate a non-branded Windows Phone 7 in order to apply the update immediately. The procedure "un-brands" the HTC device and tricks the system into believing it is carrier independent and good to go for the update. Please note that the hack is for HTC devices only and is an ...

    Monday is winding down and we've yet to see the double-shot update for the Samsung Focus we heard rumored, combining both the pre-NoDo and the full NoDo release. While that leaves Samsung users disappointed for the time being, another avenue to NoDo has opened up, as what looks like an official ROM upgrade has been leaked for the HTC 7 Mozart. Posted on the XDA-Developers forum, the update includes WP7 build 7355-89 and users have successfully installed it to update their Mozarts. From their reports, the software returns the phone to a clean installation, removing any carrier-specific ...

    Mobile analytics provider mtiks has made some Windows Phone 7 related numbers public on its blog regarding app statistics by device, country and usage. According to the figures, the US market is the number one market for Windows Phone 7 applications with 57.3% -- which is to be expected as a home country with a vast population and two carriers to start off the platform -- followed by Germany (18.48%) and UK (7.49%). Both app number and app usage-wise, the Samsung Focus is the most popular Windows Phone 7 device followed by the HTC HD7. From a centralized point of view, the top Windows ...

    Even if you are not a Windows Phone 7 user, you most probably learned by now that Microsoft has started pushing out a first Windows Phone 7 update, a prerequisite if you will for the upcoming NoDo to be out in March. On the same note, you probably also heard that there were some issues involved and Microsoft has made its stance public on the first ever Windows Phone 7 patch roll-out process. According to Microsoft, 90% of the people who actually got the update notification and started the process have managed to finalize it with success. 90% is a good number if you refer to nine people out ...

    Just a couple of days ago we were reporting that a release of the HTC Mozart, a Windows Phone 7 device with a 1GHz Qualcomm CPU and 512MB of RAM, would happen for T-Mobile in the very near future. Adding credence to this story is a passing of a the Mozart over at the WiFi alliance. The model is listed as PD67110, which isn't dissimilar than the PD67100, which is the European HTC Mozart. Rumor has it that the Mozart will hit T-Mobile with both a 8GB and 16GB model. We're still not sure if T-Mobile is going to drop the "7" labeling from the Mozart (as you might recall, the European release ...

    TmoNews is reporting that that the HTC 7 Mozart Windows Phone 7 will land on T-Mobile "really soon," possibly in a choice of 8GB or 16GB capacities -- although that latter detail has not been confirmed. Mozart has been rumored to hit Magenta since pre-WP7 debut, yet so far the only Microsoft handset on that carrier is HTC's HD7. If this does indeed come to pass, it can probably be seen as a win for Redmond, with the inference being that HD7 is selling well enough to add another Windows Phone model to the lineup. While Mozart's specs are obviously quite similar to the rest of the WP7 ...

    Have you unlocked your HTC WP7 device using ChevronWP7 and found it re-locked after syncing with Zune? XDA user thesecondsfade at has an interesting thread going about keeping your HTC WP7 device from locking itself after using the ChevronWP7 app to unlock. This program uses some of the same methods that the ChevronWP7 custom ringtone manager uses to add ringtones to your device. Rather than add ringtones however, it accomplishes this goal by using TouchXplorer to copy a provisioning XML, or "ProvXML" file to the device. The ProvXML is named CustClear.xml, and is loaded by running HTC ...

    The alarm functionality in Windows Phone 7 may be making some HTC 7 Mozarts freeze and become unresponsive, according to the observations of users on the XDA-Developers forums. The limited number of reports suggests this issue may not affect all Mozarts the same, or the steps needed to trigger it are specific enough that most users don't run into any problems. The common thread among the reported freezes is that an alarm was set and goes off as planned, but the user ignores the phone for an extended period of time. When they go to finally dismiss the alarm, their Mozart locks up. Another ...

    Australian developer Chris Walsh recently found a method to run so-called native code on the platform indicating that jailbreaking Windows Phone 7 could be possible, though it's a first step in a huge process. Same developer seems to have conquered another OS tower as he now tweeted that he's got registry and file system access. The tweet also mentions that this was achieved on Samsung and HTC devices and the developer is committed to getting that on LG handsets too. Are these hacks device dependent? Normally they shouldn't be but, as with the case of USB tethering on the Samsung Focus and ...

    Ever since we're heard about Windows Phone 7 handset specifications, many users were unhappy when it came to devices that featured 8GB of storage, besides the general complaint around the support and ability to upgrade memory cards with the new OS. While stock 8GB would most probably be enough for some, for sure it will be a small storage capacity for others and with people constantly trying to upgrade and improve, it was just a matter of time till someone completely dismantled a Windows Phone 7 device seeking a way for more storage. The HTC 7 Mozart is a tough nut to crack. The memory is ...

    Australian carrier Telstra has revealed via Twitter that it will be selling the HTC 7 Mozart and LG Optimus 7Q (LG Quantum here in the US) Windows Phone 7 handsets for AU$864 and AU$960, respectively, which translates to about $850 and $945 at current exchange rates. Now we're used to seeing HTC handsets go for a premium price unsubsidized -- the HD7 will supposedly cost upwards of $840 unlocked -- but almost $1,000 for an LG phone seems a bit much, especially since we've heard that even HTC's Surround will only cost $550 off-contract from AT&T. Both of these models feature 1GHz ...

    Samsung's Omnia 7 Windows Phone 7 will support Orange UK's improved-quality HD Voice service, a company representative has revealed via Twitter. HD Voice is Orange's implementation of so-called wideband audio (specifically the AMR-WB codec as defined by the 3GPP standards group), which increases the range of frequencies being transmitted -- compared to standard 'narrowband' telephony -- and thus improves overall call fidelity. Currently, Orange is the only major carrier to institute a large-scale rollout of this technology, and only a few compliant handsets exist. One of those handsets is ...
