The Windows Phone 7 train is slowly rolling its way into the T-Mobile station and it looks like one of the first devices to show up at "Magenta" with the new Windows Phone 7 OS is the HTC HD7. You may have seen some leaked photos of this smartphone already, and you may already know it as the Schubert, either way this phone looks pretty sweet with its massive screen real estate of 4.3-inches (largest in USA apparently).
