Expansys is selling the HTC 7 Pro, a Windows Phone 7 smartphone with a full sliding keyboard, on Vodafone with a starting monthly price of £30.65 per month with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data allowance on a two year contract.
The online retailer (opens in new tab) is also selling the LG Optimus 2X handset for the same price, on the same package. A beefier, £35.75 monthly package will include 600 minutes with the same amount of minutes and data allowance.
The HTC 7 Pro is described by Expansys as being "a breath of fresh air in world full of Android, iPhone & BlackBerry devices" although you will have to wait until mid-February before you are able to actually use it.
Note that, like for the Optimus 2X, Expansys will be giving a universal PDA/Phone car mounting kit and a microUSB car charger. Vodafone has yet to list the HTC 7 Pro on its own website where it will face the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S and the Nokia N8 Symbian^3 smartphone.
