Windows Phone 7 will be hitting the shop shelves on October 21st, so where can you get your mitts on the new handsets? And just how much will they set you back?
We’ve rounded up all the tariffs and deals into one handy Windows Phone 7 tariff guide:
HTC 7 Mozart – Exclusive to Orange
If the musical HTC 7 Mozart tickles your fancy, you’ll have to get yourself over to Orange which has the exclusive on the handset. You can pick it up for free on a £35/month 24-month contract.
HTC HD 7 – Exclusive to O2
If the large-screened HD 7 is more up your street, then O2 is the network for you. You’ll need £379 in the bank to pick it up on a SIM-only deal, or you can shell out £40/month and get the handset gratis. As well as the HD7 itself, this will also get you 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB of data.
HTC 7 Trophy – Exclusive to Vodafone
The HTC 7 Trophy trumpets its way on to Vodafone later this month, where customers will be able to get their hands on it for free on a 24-month £25/month contract. This offers 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data per month.
Network-wise the HTC 7 Trophy may well be exclusive to Vodafone, but Expansys seems to have other ideas – it’s offering the handset for £429.99 unlocked.
Samsung Omnia 7 – cross network
Shamelessly spreading itself cross-network, the Samsung Omnia 7 is available on Three, T-Mobile, and Orange.
You can nab it for free on all the networks but there is a little variation in monthly fee. Orange is looking for 24-months of your custom at £40 per month. Three is a little lower-cost at £35/month. Finally, T-Mobile is also looking for a 24-month commitment, but you can pay just £35/month and use the Orange spectrum thanks to the recent Everything Everywhere tie-in.
LG Optimus 7 – Exclusive to Vodafone
Vodafone has also nabbed the LG Optimus 7, which will be offered for free on a £30 contract, again a 24-month deal. You’ll enjoy 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of mobile data as well as the handset itself.
