First real images of the HTC HD7/HD3 appear


Here they are folks, real shots of the upcoming HTC HD7 with a 4.3" 800x480 screen and reportedly a metal body. Plus, check out that cool kick stand/bottle opener (kiddin' on that last part).

Evidently someone saw this at a bar and posted them in the Mobile01 forums--oh Apple flashbacks...

Looks pretty nice, though our pal Tim had some words:

Um, if you want to differentiate your hardware from everyone else on the planet...THAT'S THE WRONG WAY!!!

We sort of have to agree, although we think this device will fell great, it is missing a little extra something....your thoughts?

[Thanks, Eric, for the tip!]
