Summary

It's finally here. Windows Phone 7, Microsoft's latest mobile operating system has arrived and it's loaded on a handful of devices, including the HTC 7 Surround. The HTC 7 Surround is an excellent device that's going to attract casual smartphone owners and heavy multimedia users alike.

The Surround is teeming with top notch hardware. From its 1GHz processor to a 5 megapixel camera capable of recording 720p HD video, a kickstand for watching movies in landscape mode, and good battery life, it's a device that no smartphone shopper should overlook. There are a few weak points that hardcore smartphone users may not appreciate, but those aren't the fault of the phone itself.

You'll find a video of the HTC 7 Surround in action after the Table of Contents, below.
