HTC Windows Phone 7 Device Spotted

Engadget over the weekend, managed to get some pictures of a HTC smartphone running Windows Phone 7. The device has a 3.7 inch SLCD screen along with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and an 8 megapixel camera.

The three buttons that can be seen under the screen are touch sensitive just like the Nexus One and are function as a back, windows and search button which falls in line with the three buttons Microsoft [MSFT] require on Windows Phone 7 smartphones.

The device is apparently ready in terms of the hardware although the software appears to be not finished in that there is no skinning with just the basic information showing.

From what we hear, HTC is also discussing with Verizon [VZ] and possibly Sprint about bringing it to those networks. Sprint is unconfirmed but as Sprint uses CDMA, it would make sense here.

Launch dates are not known yet but we are seeing some rumours about a WP7 launch as early as next month although we think it could be later in the year perhaps in the final quarter.
