HTC 7 Pro Smartphone To Launch In February

HTC will not only launch the Android-based Gratia in February, you can also expect the HTC 7 Pro, which is based on Windows Phone 7, to be rolled out at the same time.

The HTC7 Pro targets a more business focused audience with its full QWERTY keyboard and a large, tilting 3.6-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen.

It is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm processor and integrates advanced audio features like Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW, making it an interesting multimedia powerhouse.

As expected, there's a 5-megapixel camera without flash but with Xbox Live, Windows Live, Bing and Zune integration. There's also Wi-Fi, a USB port, FM Radio, Bluetooth, 3G and 8GB onboard storage.

HTC does not expand on how the phone will make use of Microsoft's Office Mobile features and whether HTC will offer additional business-oriented features for using HTCSense.com.

The phone is expected to be available by the end of the month but no mobile phone operators have yet confirmed pricing or availability.
