O2 is selling the HTC HD7, the high end Windows Phone 7 handset from the Taiwanese manufacturer, for as little as £32.91 per month.
The Telefonica-owned mobile phone operator has the smartphone for a limited period on exclusivity. For £40 per month on a two year contract (only from O2 direct), customers will get 900 minutes, 750MB UK data allowance and unlimited texts.
A shorter 18-month contract will cost an additional £5 per month. The total cost of ownership on this offer is £960, which can be brought down considerably by opting either for a smaller package initially or by downgrading an existing package after 12 months.
The phone costs only £380 on PAYG, slightly more than the Samsung Galaxy S or the Nokia N8. The phone itself comes with a 1GHz Qualcomm Processor, a huge 4.3-inch touchscreen, 16GB internal memory, a 5-megapixel camera with a kickstand and flash as well as the ability to record HD content.
As for all Windows Phone 7, the HTC HD7 also comes with Xbox Live, native Zune compatibility plus HTC's own set of Apps within its proprietary Hub.
