HTC was one of the first companies to get behind Microsoft´s Windows Phone 7 operating system and certainly the most enthusiastic, launching several WP7 handsets to coincide with the new OS. The HTC 7 Surround was announced slightly after HTC´s initial WP7 handsets, such as the Mozart and the Trophy, and this has given the Surround the advantage of being able to iron out the minor teething problems the WP7 operating system encountered.
Like its counterpart the Mozart, the Surround´s raison d´etre is indicated by its name as this handset comes with some fantastic audio features on board including surround sound. Featuring Dolby Mobile and SRS sound enhancement the Surround truly offers a superb level of audio quality. This is topped off by the Surround´s unique speaker system. In a similar manner to many touchscreen phones that have QWERTY keypads that slide to the side, the Surround features a slide-out speaker. This speaker system also doubles as a stand, allowing you to prop the phone up on its side to watch videos on the impressive 3.8" screen.
The Surround also outperforms when it comes to video playback, with the phone´s media player offering excellent support for music and video, as well as streaming online video being available through a dedicated YouTube client. You can also record and playback your own 720p HD videos through the HTC 7 Surround´s 5 megapixel camera that also comes with an LED flash (and many other features). The Surround comes with a glorious 480 x 800 pixel resolution and 16 million colour depth to superbly show off any videos you may have lying around. There is 16GB of internal storage space for all this video or music, but unfortunately no microSD.
Other features of note include threaded SMS, full email support, a superfast 1GHz Snapdragon processor, MS Office support and 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. The HTC Surround is an excellent entertainment phone that comes with some superb professional features as well, making this the ideal phone for work and play alike.
