HTC 7 Trophy: Windows Phone 7 handset – specs, release, price

On Monday we gave you some news from the Microsoft event to launch Windows Phone 7 and we told how 10 new handsets had been announced, 9 imminently and 1 more due in the New Year. We’ve since been giving you more details on each one and have already given you details of some such as the HTC HD7, the HTC 7 Mozart, the Samsung Focus, and the Dell Venue Pro.

It’s time now to look a bit more at the HTC 7 Trophy which will be available on Vodafone in the U.K., France, Germany, Spaink Austria and Switzerland and also on Vodafone in Australia and New Zealand, according to Thomas Ricker over on Engadget. The HTC 7 Trophy has a WVGA LCD screen, along with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

The 7 Trophy also has 8GB storage, 576MB of RAM and 720p video recording and although it does not have the more advance 8-megapixel camera of the Mozart, it is targeted to be the most competitive in price in the HTC Windows Phone 7 range. The HTC 7 Trophy will not be available in the U.S. but Sprint will be carrying the HTC 7 Pro from January 2011 (more on that coming up).

The 7 Trophy’s 3.8-inch touchscreen and 5-megapixel camera, looks to be a safe bet if you want to try out a handset running on the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system, if the price is competitive of course. There’s no official word on price for the HTC 7 Trophy yet but Ionut Arghire over on Softpedia reports a leaked price of £430 in the U.K. with no contract, but that will be different of course on contract. Also although the date of October 21 was initially bandied about for most of the new Windows Phone 7 handsets the expected launch of the HTC 7 Trophy looks like November 8.

Are you tempted to purchase the HTC 7 Trophy or would you rather pay a bit more for the Mozart or HD7 perhaps? We’re interested to hear your thoughts on the HTC 7 Trophy or other Windows 7 handsets so please do send in your comments.
