If you’re into Microsoft’s newest mobile effort, Windows Phone 7, and if you happen to live in the UK and enjoy physical QWERTY keyboards, this is one deal you just can’t miss. Well known online retailer Play.com has cut the price of the HTC 7 Pro all the way down to an amazing £229.99.
That’s for a device that was going for no less than £432 when it was launched in the UK in February. So it’s almost half price right now. And, aside from the screen and that QWERTY keyboard, this is pretty much your standard WP7 device. Since Microsoft has clear minimum specs drawn for the platform, you can be sure you won’t be getting an underperforming handset.
The HTC 7 Pro has a 3.6-inch 480×800 capacitive touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, 8 GB of internal storage space, a 3.5 mm headset jack, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, HSDPA, and a 1500 mAh battery. It runs Windows Phone 7, of course, and its main selling point in a world full of lookalike WP7 handsets must be the side-sliding QWERTY keyboard.
If you’re interested, head over to Play.com and order one. Do keep in mind that we don’t know if this price represents a limited time offer or not, so it may be best to do that as soon as possible.
