Microsoft admits causing WP7 NoDo color glitches but blames HTC

Microsoft has confirmed that color banding and resolution issues HTC HD7 and HTC Trophy owners experienced after installing the recent Windows Phone 7 NoDo update was intentionally provoked, blaming HTC for stepping outside of the strict specification rules for the platform. According to a Microsoft support team member, HTC granted the two smartphones 32-bit color depth support, and NoDo switched that to the mandated 16-bit; in the process it triggered visual glitchiness and banding, a side-effect that Microsoft reckons users shouldn't actually see.

HTC 7 Pro could be Verizon’s first WP7 phone

HTC's 7 Pro might be Verizon's first Windows Phone 7 device. The HTC 7 Pro is also known on Sprint's networks as the HTC Arrive. We reviewed the Arrive here recently. The possibility that this phone was imminently going to be a part of Verizon's stable was revealed when a gaming site that tracks and publicly displays the hits from various phone operating systems displayed some otherwise unknown model numbers. First off, hats off to the crew over at pocketnow for putting the pieces to this puzzle together.

Verizon HTC Android phone latest to leak

Verizon HTC Android phone latest to leak

Short of only making a single prototype and sewing it into Peter Chou's trouser pocket, we're not sure what HTC could do to stop its smartphones leaking and spoiling the surprise come launch day; still, if they didn't we wouldn't get premature glimpses of models like this Verizon slab from the mobile01 forums. Hot on the heels of the potential Desire replacement from earlier today, this Verizon-branded model is also expected to run Android.

HTC HD7 Review

HTC HD7 Review

The HTC HD7 wears its potential on its sleeve. The biggest of the first batch of Windows Phone 7 devices, at 4.3-inches it's also one of the largest smartphones of any OS on the market. We've already given our approval to Windows Phone 7 in our launch-day reviews, and we were quietly impressed during our initial play at the HD7's launch. Available exclusively on O2 in the UK right now, and T-Mobile in the USA from November 8, is the HD7 not just the biggest but the best Windows Phone 7 device around? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC 7 Mozart Review

HTC 7 Mozart Review

Out of all of Microsoft's hardware launch partners for Windows Phone 7, HTC has probably invested the most in supporting the new OS. The company's Windows Phone 7 team is the second largest around, lagging only Microsoft itself, and with four handsets in the first wave and a fifth to follow before the end of the year, there's a fair chance that most newcomers to the platform will have an HTC device. The HTC 7 Mozart is an Orange and T-Mobile exclusive in the UK, ironically the company's smallest in terms of display but packing the highest-spec camera. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC 7 Surround Review

HTC 7 Surround Review

HTC's play for the Windows Phone 7 market is arguably stronger in Europe, at least at launch, but that doesn't mean the company has forgotten North America. The HTC 7 Surround joins the Samsung Focus on AT&T, launching with the US carrier as the HTC Surround, and will also cross the border to Canadian carrier Telus. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC 2010 roadmap leaks: HTC Bravo 1GHz Android confirmed [Updated]

HTC 2010 roadmap leaks: HTC Bravo 1GHz Android confirmed [Updated]

HTC's device line-up for the first half of 2010 has apparently leaked, courtesy of xda-developers, after a prototype brochure fell into the wrong hands.  The range consists of five Android devices and three Windows Mobile handsets, including the so-called hero model of 1H 2010, the Android-based HTC Bravo.  The Bravo will pack the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor as the HTC HD2 along with a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen and HD 720p video capture.  Full line-up details after the cut.

Updated: We've contacted HTC for a comment, and unsurprisingly they're not confirming anything.  "We cannot comment on speculation or rumour," HTC tell us, "but we’re excited about our upcoming roadmap and encourage you to watch this space."

Verizon Galaxy Nexus reaches End of Life with Galaxy S III and DROID RAZR

Verizon Galaxy Nexus reaches End of Life with Galaxy S III and DROID RAZR

This week there've been a couple reports of Verizon hitting the End of Life marker for a variety of phones working with their 4G LTE network, this including (for starters) the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S III (32GB), and original DROID RAZR. When an official End of Life notification hits Verizon, this means that any devices tagged with said notification will no longer be shipped to retail locations and the carrier will be winding down advertisements for said devices as well. While this isn't a definitive marker for Verizon's end-of-service for software updates, End of Life is often indicative of lowered priority for the devices listed from that point forward.
