It comes with a 3.7 inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen sporting a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.

The handset comes packed with a 1.4 GHz Scorpion Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon single-core processor under the hood. True, the competition offers phones sporting dual-core and even quad-core processors. However, Microsoft's strict hardware requirements require Windows Phone manufacturers to outfit phones running the platform with single-core processors.

It offers a stand-by time of up to 335 hours on a 3G network. It offers as much as 9 hours and 30 minutes of talk time on a 3G network. Lastly, it offers as much as 55 hours of music playback.
