HTC HD3 (HD7): Release Date and New Name?

By Alan Ng - Sep 2, 2010

On a day which has mostly been all about the new lineup of Apple iPod devices, we couldn’t let this major piece of information slip through our fingers. The highly anticipated HTC HD3 has been spotted again, this time with some solid information for consumers.

According to this report from Engadget, the HTC HD3 will be rebranded as the ‘HD7’ as it will be running Windows Phone 7 and the name sort of makes sense when you think about it.

Furthermore, Engadget has also received a document, which reveals an October 18th release date. As you can see from the image over at Engadget, the HTC HD7 has been listed alongside various handsets from the likes of Nokia, RIM and LG.

We don’t have a confirmed US carrier for the HTC HD7 yet, but hopefully we will find that out for you soon. What are your thoughts on this? We knew the HD3 would be a Windows Phone 7 device anyway, but are you happy with the name change to HD7? I kind of like it you know!
