Other than the inferior camera and the comparatively dull aesthetic, I'm struggling to see the point of the Trophy being offered alongside the Mozart.

HTC's own description for the Trophy reads:

"HTC 7 Trophy harnesses the power of Xbox LIVE. Gamers will enjoy the speed and responsiveness of fast action gameplay supported by the phone’s high-performance 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and controlled through the vivid WVGA 3.8″ touchscreen. High-fidelity, virtual surround sound – through SRS WOW HD™ – brings a rich audio experience whether the user is playing a game, watching a video or listening to their favorite music."

...but Xbox LIVE obviously isn't unique to this handset, and neither are the SRS WOW HD feature or Snapdragon processor that's in all their other WP7 releases.

I've been holding off on my Vodafone upgrade for six months, and it looks like the Trophy is the only HTC WP7 handset they'll be stocking, which sucks. That said, even the 'mighty' HD7 isn't really a step-up in terms of hardware over my HD2.

From a hardware point of view, I've got to say that today's announcements were pretty disappointing!

Agreed, the Trophy is the weakest of the handsets for me. No redeeming specifications (I suppose the 3.8" screen is an improvement over the 3.7" on the Mozart), but it loses the unibody construction.
