Windows Phone 7 handsets are attractive more reasonable than ever as the price of the HTC 7 Mozart has just dropped to £275, a saving of more than £75 and perilously close to the average price of mainstream Android smartphones.The handset is existing 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 limited 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 insufficient it is.
This could mean that new Windows Phone 7 handsets could fit be on the way with models likely to be unveiled over the next few months.
