T-Mobile’s big Windows Phone 7, plus a WP7 Dell

AT&T may be the carrier on stage with Steve Ballmer at Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 launch, but T-Mobile’s got a bigger WP7 phone.

T-Mobile today is unveiling the HD7, a Windows Phone 7-based touchscreen phone with a 4.3-inch diagonal screen.

T-Mobile is calling it “the largest screen available on a Windows Phone in the U.S.”

The HD7 also has a 1 Gigahertz processor, 802.11n WiFi, GPS navigation, 16 gigabytes of internal memory, FM radio and an HD camcorder. It comes with pre-installed media services, including Netflix and the new T-Mobile TV. The latter provides live and on-demand TV content from ABC News, Fox Sports, PBS Kids and other channels.

It weighs 5.71 ounces and comes with a “kickstand” for propping it up to watch video.

Also premiering on the HD7 is T-Mobile’s new “Family Room” application for families to connect and coordinate activities. It includes a virtual chalkboard where family members can share notes, a shared calendar and automatic notifications when family members post something.

Pricing and the exact ship date isn’t available yet but T-Mobile said the HD7 will be available by mid-November and the price will be comparable to its other high-end smartphones.

You could say the HD7 is the WP7 triple-play phone for Seattle. It’s made by HTC, which has its U.S. offices in Bellevue across Interstate 90 from T-Mobile USA, and not far from Microsoft’s headquarters (and offices along I-90).

T-Mobile’s also going to be the carrier for Dell’s new Windows Phone 7 device, the Venue Pro, that will be sold thorugh Dell.com and some retailers. It has a slide-out keypad, a 4.1-inch screen, 5 megapixel camera and 1 Gigahertz processor.
