[Full 7 Pro Review] Released January 2011, the HTC 7 Pro is one of the only Windows Phone 7 devices to feature a full QWERTY slideout keyboard. What's different about this slider is that when the keyboard is slid out, the screen will tilt up to give a better viewing angle when typing on the keyboard. Its 3.6-inch Super LCD display has a WVGA 480 x 800 resolution. Inside the HTC 7 Pro smartphone is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 448MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM. It also features a five-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording and LED flash with autofocus. Read on for the latest HTC 7 Pro news, reviews and videos:

    HTC couldn't let Nokia win it all with its free turn-by-turn offline navigation solution bundled with Lumia Windows Phones. Some HTC Locations users on Android had the opportunity to download maps but now there's a new version available for Windows Phone users rocking Taiwanese phones. Now the new version of HTC Locations allows you to download maps and use them for offline navigation. The new description reflects just that: "find your way with directions or voice guidance. You can download maps to your phone for offline use, or search and browse online maps when you're connected". If you ...

    We've heard of the 8107 update for Windows Phone at the very beginning of 2012; it is supposed to bring both fixes to privacy as well as the keyboard which in certain scenarios disappears. Microsoft announced that the 8107 update will be available "to all carriers that request it" but the build number was the highest we've officially heard of. The database of the popular WP Bench application -- used for basic Windows Phone benchmarking -- now features a build number 7.10.8745. It first surfaced in the app some four days ago and is reportedly running on an HTC 7 Pro. What are we looking at ...

    There's a weird problem that's been appearing on more and more HTC Windows Phone devices lately. While we've seen some reports of it that date back earlier, a whole new group started noticing its effects after installing the recent 7740 update. On affected phones, owners find that every time they reset their device, it comes back on with a new WiFi MAC address. If randomized MAC addresses don't sound like a big deal to you, then you can go right on not worrying, but if you connect to a WiFi network that registers MAC addresses and uses them as a component of its access system, you probably ...

    Been waiting patiently for Mango updates to arrive? If you've got an HTC-made Windows Phone 7 device, you may be in for quite the treat, as official Mango releases for many of its models have just been leaked. ROMs are available for the Gold (Pro), Mozart, Spark (Trophy), and Schubert (HD7). The only one missing appears to be the Mondrian (Surround). Most of these ROMs are for the European versions of the handsets, though there is one for the Trophy on Verizon. All are Mango 7720.68, the final version released to manufacturers. If you're going to try your hand at installing one of these ...

    This week we heard about the first RSPL/HSPL project for Windows Phone 7-powered HTC devices, which should open up the gates for future customization and even custom ROMs from the underground developer community. In case you doubted it, here's the first ever second custom Windows Phone 7 ROM. It comes courtesy of the Dark Forces Team (DFT), the ones behind many Windows Phone ports and the HSPL itself. It is reportedly suitable for first wave Windows Phones made by the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC. According to the description, it is suitable "for all HTC operator devices which support by ...

    A month ago we saw how you could update your Windows Phone to the latest Windows Phone Mango Beta but since then Redmond updated the build and released the Beta 2 of Mango which brings quite a lot of changes. In this video walkthrough we'll show you how to update basically any Windows Phone to the latest build 7712 of Mango, the Beta 2. The prerequisites are quite the same: you have to have a NoDo-powered Windows Phone and make sure you've got plenty of battery juice left! 1. Download the tool found at step 1 at the link below, version 0.3. 2. Download and install the Windows Phone Support ...

    If you've been a Windows Mobile user you definitely remember the old days of flashing custom ROMs. You were able to do that with the help of Hard SPL, a custom bootloader that allowed for flashing of unofficial (custom) ROMs to the phone. Some HTC Windows Phones are supported by a new tool that reportedly brings HSPL to Windows Phone 7. With Microsoft and its new, locked down platform, the question for custom ROMs and deep customization wasasked by almost every Windows Mobile power user. DarkForces Team have released a tool that supports five HTC Windows Phones: Gold (HTC Pro 7, T7575), ...

    HTC launched its first Windows Phone 7 smartphone on Sprint this past spring as the HTC Arrive, the CDMA version of the 7 Pro. Prior to the phone's release, we had heard the phone referred to by the codename Ruby. After the Arrive, well, arrived, Ruby chatter died off and we were content to believe that the smartphone was indeed this new Windows Phone 7 device. Well, that might have been premature, as now the HTC Ruby has popped back on our radar, and it's not quite what we were expecting. The photos above and below are marked as being taken by an HTC Ruby, catching a glimpse of themselves ...

    A month ago U.S. Cellular told the world about its plans to bring seven Android phones and one Windows Phone to its line-up this year. From these, three will be made by HTC and if we take the one Taiwanese Windows Phone out there are only two HTC Android phones left. According to the image above -- which is really a leaked U.S. Cellular rebate form -- we know that the carrier is preparing the HTC Desire II and the HTC Wildfire S. The Desire II is really the Desire S, follow-up to the popular HTC Desire, with a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 768MB of RAM, 1.1GB of ROM, and a 3.7-inch WVGA 480x800 ...

    Remember U.S. Cellular preparing seven Android-powered smartphones and a Windows Phone for this year? It looks like the Windows Phone is the first to come out and it's the QWERTY-slider HTC 7 Pro, announced officially by the carrier. Starting today, the U.S. Cellular HTC 7 Pro is available $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate along with a data plan purchase and a new two-year agreement. Nothing out of the ordinary hardware-wise, just your typical Windows Phone with a 1GHz processor and WVGA display and that aside, your ordinary HTC 7 Pro. That means the 3.6-inch tilted touchscreen is in and ...

    Cellular South will be the second domestic carrier to pick up the Windows Phone 7-powered HTC 7 Pro QWERTY slider, following Sprint (with the HTC Arrive), with Mississippi's Clarion Ledger reporting that a release is scheduled for tomorrow, June 13th. Pricing is said to be $199.99 on a two-year contract, which is the same as most other WP7 handsets on the larger national carriers. We're also expecting the 7 Pro to hit Verizon at some point as just the HTC Pro, based on evidence from user agent profiles and other public documentation.

    The HTC 7 Pro Windows Phone 7 QWERTY slider now appears headed for Verizon, after first being released last month by Sprint as the HTC Arrive. Specifically, the phone seems to be the same MWP6885 which showed up among several unknown handsets on a gaming site which tracks hits from WP7 devices. Also on that list is the similar model number MWP6985, which we know from several sources (Cellebrite, PDADb.net) is Verizon's upcoming version of the 7 Trophy. We can assume from the naming conventions that MWP6985 and MWP6885 are destined for the same carrier (MWP probably stands for Microsoft ...

    They say that security through obscurity is none at all, and when it comes to protecting WiFi networks, there's no substitution for using proper up-to-date encryption with a strong key. That said, there's no sense in making things easier for anyone potentially trying to tap into your network, so many of us also use MAC filtering or choose not to broadcast the network's SSID. That latter choice can cause headaches for Windows Phone 7 users, with no way to select a network to join if it's in this "invisible" state. HTC just came out with a fix, courtesy of its Hidden Wi-Fi app. The free WP7 ...

    Dark Forces Team (DFT), a group of smartphone hackers heavily involved with HTC devices revealed in photos today a modified SPL that could potentially enable custom ROMs and the possibility of MAGLDR, which could mean deploying Android to the WP7 platform soon. DFT is known for releasing HardSPL and MAGLDR for a number of HTC Windows Mobile devices such as the HTC HD2 which allows the deployment of custom ROMs and alternative operating systems. Pictured in the photos are the HTC 7 Mozart (PD67100), and HTC 7 Pro (PC92100), both running a custom SPL created by Cotulla. No word yet as to the ...

    What exactly did yesterday's HTC-wide Windows Phone 7 update accomplish? Some users didn't notice any changes at all. Reader Glueharbour reported a fix for camera handling in sleep mode and a general data speed boost when using WiFi for data. With as small as these changes are, we wouldn't be surprised if there are even more tweaks that just haven't been spotted yet. There's a chance, though, that things have changed for the worse, as some owners of HTC smartphones have reported that they appear to now be using a lower bit depth for their graphics. The problems apparently crop up once ...
