Yesterday, it was announced that AT&T would be getting the HTC HD7-S, with the "S" standing for Super-LCD, a screen tech comparable to Super AMOLED (sans the annoying pen-tile matrix). It's a big win for the HD7, since the T-Mobile version's screen is one of the worst we've seen for Windows Phone and it's a shame, because that phone deserves better.

Pocket-lint did a quick side by side of the sister phones and to them, the Super LCD was much better:

It’s clear that the HD7S is the better of the two, plus you’ll get a phone that you can use in 2 years time after T-Mobile shuts down its spectrum if and when the AT&T merger goes through.

That last part referencing the pending AT&T/T-Mobile merger announced on Sunday. Although it's hard to tell from the pic (and differing themes don't help), we're inclined to believe just about anything is better than the T-Mo's screen. We have our crew on the ground for CTIA as well, so expect some hands on time with the HD7S shortly. Check out Engadget's write up of S-LCD vs AMOLED.
