If you’re wondering what Windows Phone 7 handsets will be available on each network, we’ve got the line-up here.
O2 will go with the HTC HD7, which is has secured exclusively for the foreseeable future. The handset is the natural successor to the HD2 that ran on Windows Mobile 6.5. It includes a 5-megapixel camera, HD video recording and a kick-stand to prop up the phone for media playback. The phone will be free on a £40 per month contract, or £349 on prepay.
Orange is taking the HTC 7 Mozart, with its 8-megapixel camera and Xenon flash. It will also stock the Samsung Omnia 7.
T-Mobile is ranging the Samsung Omnia 7 too, but not the Mozart, despite now being part of Orange under the ‘Everything Everywhere’ umbrella.
Vodafone will launch with the HTC 7 Trophy and LG’s Optimus 7, the only model that includes DLNA support so you can share media (photos, video, music) with complaint devices, such as a home audio system or TV.
Like Orange and T-Mobile, Three is backing Samsung’s Omnia 7.
Handsets will go on sale from October 21st, offered on a range of fairly high tariffs to take into account the premium market segment of all Windows Phone 7 devices.
