As one of the most popular and successful manufacturers of Windows Mobile 6 devices it comes as no surprise that HTC already look set to repeat that success with their Windows Phone 7 range.
While most of the WP7 handsets seen so far are fairly high-end, the HTC 7 Trophy is a slightly cheaper option for those who don’t necessarily want to fork out for the best phone money can buy. It has been announced that the HTC 7 Trophy will be a Vodafone exclusive in the UK.[
The HTC 7 Trophy may not be quite on par with models such as the HD7 but it is still a very solid device. The 3.8″ screen is bigger than that of the iPhone 4, the 5MP camera can record 720p video and 8GB of storage is included. The best thing about the HTC 7 Trophy is the fact Vodafone will be offering it for free on a £25 24 month contract. This makes the Trophy much more affordable than most other WP7 phones we’ve seen so far.
Here at Compare and Recycle we are a little confused at Vodafone‘s decision not to release the Trophy on a Pay As You Go tariff. Since the Trophy is more of an entry-level model the lower cost of the handset seems to make it well suited to a PAYG tariff .
