HTC Trophy SIM-free: Yours for £430
If you liked the look of the HTC Trophy at the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 event, but was miffed to find out that it would be a Vodafone exclusive in the UK, then help could be on hand from Amazon, who is offering up a SIM-free model of the device.
For £429.99, you could nab one of the launch WP7 handsets, with a release date of 8 November penned in for Amazon’s shipment.
Vodafone had confirmed to Pocket-lint that it will be offering the Trophy for free on a 2-year contract with 300 minutes, unlimited text messages, and 500MB for £25 a month.
The HTC Trophy is powered by a 1GHz QSD processor, has 512MB of ROM, 576MB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
Measuring 118.5 x 61.5 x 11.96mm and weighing in at 140g, the Trophy has HSDPA, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity.
Like the other HTC WP7 launch handsets, it features Dolby Mobile and SRS surround sound along with the WP7-integrated Zune player.
We’ve put in calls to both HTC and Vodafone to see what they say about Amazon offering the Trophy and we’re waiting to hear back.
