HTC HD3 with Windows Phone 7 Faked…But Still Awful Pretty

3768-4b9e893576f5e After all this doom and gloom from Redmond, I don’t know about you but I need a Windows Phone Feel Good Moment…and here comes one, right on time!

MobileMentalism managed to get a hold of some pictures and specs (from a Chinese site called PCOnline) for the HTC HD3, a Windows Phone 7 superphone that looks like it could be poised to give the current crop of Android world beaters a run for their money. Those who have been uphappy with the ever increasing size of the new batch of Androids won’t be happy with this one either, a 4.5 inch AMOLED screen…but good lord the specs for the HD3 look incredible.

As could have been expected, the writer at MobileMentalism spent a paragraph saying how much better this phone would be running Android (as nearly every blog did about the HD2) but in the end they have to admit, this phone gives us a reason to look forward to Windows Phone 7 again.

Check out a pic and translated specs after the jump. The screen shots look very fishy to me, so I am taking this with a large grain of salt until I hear something more, but WOW.

UPDATE: Word is that this is an old WP7 fake that is  being retreaded by PCOnline. However, considering the current crop of Android phones, I wouldn’t be overly surprised if we see something like this running Windows Phone in 2011, especially if the OS gains some traction against Android and iOS.

    Done more digging…this is VERY similar to a HD3 that was reported by a Chinese website that was proven to be a fake about 6 months ago.

    This one is making the rounds now, and most sensible people (like myself) are saying this could be a fake, but it would be a very smart way for HTC to go for the HD3, faked or no.

    Personally, I doubt you will ever buy this phone unless the person who dreamed it up makes it for you out of playdoh….but I would not be surprised if something SIMILAR was released at the end of the year by HTC.

    This has fake written all over it!… It smells just because ALL the specs are a tad above the iPhone4: screen, speed, memory, camera, physical size… you can't get them all above iphone at the same time…
    If true… I'll buy tons of stock in HTC….

    this actually destroys the iPhone. But seriously if you look at the minimum requirements for Win7 it is pretty close. It will have atleast a 1GHz snapdragon, but I see it having a 480×800 res and 512MB of RAM. Quit comparing everything to the iPhone. Everyone knows by christmas the iPhone will be outdated. This trend will continue until Apple makes a 2nd model of its lineup.

    Does Windows Phone 7 even support 1280 x 800? That's so far above any other phone that I've ever heard of that it alone makes me think this is fake.

    The specs are high but they are consistent with Qualcomm's press release on their new chip's capabilities.

    284dpi is pretty close to retina display right?

  • ArrowSmith

    For Microsoft to have any chance there needs to be WP7 devices that exceed the iPhone 4 not just in quality but industrial design and performance. Not likely.
