While we're a little over a week away from Windows Phone 7 devices hitting the shelves in the U.S., we've gotten the opportunity to review the HTC Surround.

Scheduled to land on AT&T's shelves on November 8th, the Surround's first impressions was rather surprising. The phone felt good in the hand and was thinner than expected. I half expected the sliding speaker to add more thickness to the phone.  The Surround makes such a strong first impression, I'm re-thinking my original choice for my Windows Phone 7 device.

We'll get a full review up shortly but in the meantime, we've put together a short un-boxing video to tide everyone over.
