AT&T HTC HD7S now available at Amazon (and elsewhere)

Well, AT&T made good with their June 5th launch date for the HTC HD7S (see our full review here). Not only is it available at retail stores and AT&T's online store (opens in new tab), it is also available over at AmazonWireless (opens in new tab).

Through Amazon, the HD7S out of contract, will run you $489.99, as an upgrade $149.99 and as a new phone with contractual discounts $99.99 ($149.99 if it's a part of a Family Account).

Depending on the purchase you may also be eligible for free two-day shippin and additional instant discounts from Amazon.com. Unfortunately, it hasn't appeared on AmazonWireless's $25 gift card promotion. We're hoping that will change later today.

  • Man, $500.00 is a bit steep for OOC price. I'm going to try and sell my focus and captivate to get this. edit: it's 489.00 from Amazon.
  • TBH you might as well save it up for some new Mango hardware. As much as I think the HD7S will rock, AT&T released it at possibly the worst time for anyone who would be interested in picking one up.
  • When I got my Surround in November, I had just signed a new 2 year contract on a Tilt2 (paid 0.01 for that one) around July 1st. Price was $499, but they gave me a $100 loyalty discount, so $399 total. Sold the Tilt2 (an untouched spare) for $225 on eBay. So go and ask AT&T what they can do for you with an off contract purchase. Good chance it will be better than $499.
  • I am very torn... I just purchased a samsung infuse less than 30 days ago...I've been a fan and supporter of windows phone 7 since it was first announced... I do like my samsung infuse quite a bit but I had my eye on the hd 7 for a while... I'm within my 30 days to exchange phones but afraid I will not like it as much as my infuse... I'll be taking a step back as far as the megapixels, front facing camera, sd memory expansion, and at&t pseudo 4g... plus I need it to sync 100 percent with outlook... I've been used to that in windows mobile and now with android... but I just simply love metro and hd 7 is 1 of the best windows phone 7s out there... and most afraid to give up my customizing options... enjoyed that with windows mobile and really like it with android... what to do what to do...
  • here is what you should do... stay with your front facing camera phone which im sure you dont really use.. and fake 4g network... you have to remember you are paying extra buck for fake 4g...customization???? what kind>>>..all you talk about is the specs of your phone?????y???? if you want a real safe,stable,smooth os.... you go with hd7s... trust me you will never regret...winmo is history,msft threw that in the trash. so i were you i will move on.... goodluck.
  • Front Facing Camera: I've used it several times when my daughter and I are out together and want to snap a shot together. My wife and I have also used Qix video chat a few times a week to chat at lunch. 4G: Yeah, I've seen no changes in my phone speeds. I didn't purchase it for the "4G" anyway so it really isn't a keeping point for me.Customization: If I want a totally new launcher screen (live tiles on WP7), I can go from my built in touchwiz, to LauncherPro or my currently in use SPB Shell 3D. I like having "tiles" of screens of categories of apps/functions. On the flip side, I DO like live tiles. But I did convince someone to purchase a WP7 and I played around with it for a while and it seemed more like SPB Shell in a sense...nice look, low utility value.Here is my "day to day" that I use with my Droid:Outlook Syncing: I sync Contacts, Calendar, Tasks AND Notes via Companionlink/DejaOffice...it works rather well...not as clean as ActiveSync did but it works well and wirelessly. I used ActiveSync for 4-5 years and simply can't live without syncing with Outlook.Remtoe Desktop: When I get paged, in a pinch, the VPN and Remote Desktop (especially Citrix receiver) come in Handy with my Android Phone.Dropbox: I am a heavy DropBox user. I know better SkyDrive functions are coming with Mango but I need this now. I can also do the same with SkyDrive on Droid with an app called Sorami.I am not trashing WP7 at all...just can't take a step back for 18-24 months. The HD7 is a fine phone but considering I don't want to lose my most important features now, it would be better to wait for the Second Gen phones, Mango and post Mango updates...Does that make more sense?

  • Honestly, as much as I would love to bring you over from the dark side, I suggest you stick with what you have, but keep your eyes open. By December-January, the WP desire may just be too strong for you. Right now, based on your comments, I think you would be giving up too much. I was a "must" sync with Outlook guy up until last November 8th. It took a lot to pull me away from my WinMo comfort zone, but after playing with the Surround in-store for a little over an hour, went home and thought about it for another hour, and then drove back to the AT&T store to pick up my the phone and become part of the future. I figured out how to live without Outlook (although I could have all that integration for $4.95/month using an Excahange service) and all the other "temporary" shortcoming are minor compared to the things this phone can do, and do it very well. Absolutely no regrets.
  • I know...I've been mulling over the Outlook stuff for quite sometime. I started "testing" the WP7 waters by trying Outlook Connector for a while but it was horrible...convoluted...I could live without Tasks and Notes...I could move to OneNote easily...Calendar...I'd stick with Google Calendar since my wife would stay Android...but I am having trouble giving up my contacts in Outlook...I like them there...I like to work there and my phone and have them in sync...so hard to give that up. Who offers Exchange for $4.95 a month? I may be interested...
  • I went to AT&T and they didn't even have it out...I can upgrade again in 18 months and I am going to wait until then and go Windows Phone...
  • The local store I went to received eight phones yesterday and I ended up buying the last one. In talking to the Store Manager, she said that other stores in the area were seeing similar results. High interest with low stock.
  • u dont have to wait that long dude... in windows phone there will be no device left behind. so you are assured of timely updates.. unlike androids...
  • I love my Surround, but always wanted a HD7 but it wasn't offered at AT+T. Looks like I lost out here :(
  • I just ordered this last night from Amazon. It was practically "free" with all my saved up AmazonBucks. I suspect I will be replacing it when the new Mango devices are released, but I just got so tired of waiting.I love the UI, but all of the WP7 devices to date are all lacking the look and feel that I want. None of the manufacturers are really going out of their way to stand out from each other, just toeing the minimum specs line.
