HTC 7 Mozart Now Cheapest Windows Phone 7 In UK At £275

Windows Phone 7 handsets are becoming more affordable than ever as the price of the HTC 7 Mozart has just dropped to £275, a saving of more than £75 and dangerously close to the average price of mainstream Android smartphones.

The handset is available from PurelyGadgets and is a SIM-Free/unlocked model. The phone is a more than decent model, which comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon system on chip clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM and a 3.7-inch capacitive, WVGA touchscreen display - features that are also found on the HTC Desire.

What's more, the handset, which is made from a single piece of brushed aluminium, like the HTC Legend, has an eight-megapixel camera with HD video recording, AF and a Xenon Flash, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and SRS WOW HD audio.

With 8GB onboard, 512MB internal storage, there's plenty of space to make good use of exclusive features found on Windows Phone 7 such as Zune HD, Xbox or Office.

The price drop however doesn't seem to be across all online retailers although it seems that the phone is getting phased out given how scarce it is.

This could mean that new Windows Phone 7 handsets could well be on the way with models likely to be unveiled over the next few months.
