Now, March has just begun and some folks over at XDA-Developers have found a leaked ROM for the HTC Mozart. The ROM looks like an official one and brings copy and paste functionality along with speed improvements to the handset. The WP7 build included in this ROM is 7355-89.
Mozart owners should keep in mind that flashing this ROM on their handset will wipe it clean from all data. The ROM is a generic one, so all carrier branding will be removed as well. Brave Mozart owners who flashed this ROM on their handset are reporting that they are pretty happy with it.
The Mozart is the first WP7 handset to get copy and paste functionality, unofficially at least! Hopefully, Microsoft will release the NoDo update for all WP7 handsets within the next couple of weeks.

We have already seen the Windows Phone 7 powered HTC Mozart few months ago in the wild, but the specs of this device was not available at that time. Now an anonymous tipster has shared a video of HTC Mozart with the WMpoweruser guys, which completely reveals the specs of this amazing device. Check out the complete specs and the leaked video below.
HTC Mozart is powered by Windows Phone 7 OS and it runs on the 1GHz Qualcomm QSD 8250 processor. It has a 3.7-inch WVGA Super LCD display, 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash, HD (720p) video recording, 512MB ROM, 576MB RAM, 8GB internal memory, 32GB expandable memory, Audio DSP with SRS, Dolby Mobile and a 1300 mAh battery.

HTC Mozart is a powerful device and has the Dolby Mobile for superior mobile entertainment needs. The price and availability of this handset is not available yet. Stay tuned for more updates on HTC Mozart. Until then, check out the leaked video of HTC Mozart below.
Vertex214 over at Xda-Developers has managed to get his hand on a small brochure from the Australian carrier Telstra. The brochure shows the upcoming HTC Mozart which will be running on WP7. The device is expected to hit the stores sometime in the month of October. According to the brochure, the device will be sold for $49.
From the picture, it is clearly visible that the HTC Mozart is a Desire mock-up. It might be possible that the Mozart resembles the HTC Desire. The device is expected to hit T-Mobile USA as well. The “critical aim” of the device is to sell in large quantities.
Perhaps, this phone will help WP7 gain some market against the iOS4, and Android. As of now, no information about the phone’s hardware is available.
