Another WP7 handset gets its close-up...

The Mozart is the smallest of the three Windows Phone 7 (WP7) smartphones made by HTC on sale in the UK.

The handset measures 119mm x 60.2mm x 11.9mm and weighs 130g - smaller and lighter than its two brothers, the HTC HD7 and the HTC 7 Trophy.

As with all WP7 handsets, the Mozart packs a large capacitive touchscreen at 3.7 inches. However, it's still a fair bit smaller than the HTC HD7, which sports a 4.3-inch screen.

There's also a 1GHz processor, 802.11n wi-fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and GPS - plus compass, proximity sensor, accelerometer and ambient light sensor.

As with all HTC's WP7 handsets, the Mozart comes loaded with a bundle of apps - including weather, stocks and photo processing software - which can be accessed via a dedicated hub, pictured above.

All WP7 devices are required by Microsoft to sport three dedicated buttons on the front - back, home and search. The Mozart puts these buttons behind glass, making them virtual rather than physical keys - as shown above.

There's an eight-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, and the handset supports 720p HD video recording.

Here's the back of the HTC 7 Mozart. The handset's chassis is made of a single piece of milled aluminium, with two rubberised patches - at the top and bottom - designed to improve grip.

The battery is removed by sliding off the rubberised plastic plate at the bottom of the phone and flipping a plastic bar down, as shown above.

Talktime on the Mozart is up to 330 minutes on WCDMA and up to 405 minutes on GSM, according to HTC.
