What is a ‘Super LCD’ display? The HD7 versus the HD7S

What is a ‘Super LCD’ display? The HD7 versus the HD7S

Yesterday we brought you the news that the HTC HD7S would be coming to AT&T in just a matter of weeks, something that might annoy owners of the regular HD7 on T-Mobile.

Why is that? Because the HD7S is supposed to have a much, much better screen than its brother, the HD7. In fact, in a fit of pure non-creativity, the improved screen is called a ‘Super LCD.’

Happily for the world, our friends over at Pocket Lint managed to line up both the HD7 and the HD7S side by side to show off just how much better the new screen is. Take a look:

The difference is pretty clear to us, we must say.

What does this new phone mean for the world of WP7? It implies that the phone line continues to expand and mature, two things that it desperately needs to do. Now with over 10,000 apps under its belt, the WP7 phone line needs to push hardware improvements as, while the WP7 OS is strong, its carrying hardware has been capable but dull.

Of course, with the AT&T and T-Mobile (US) merger in the works, it could be in short order that the combined giant carries both the HD7 and the HD7S, but for now that is too up in the air to call.

If you own an HD7, do you now wish that you had waited?
