Since its official unveiling in the US, it was clear that the HTC 7 Pro would eventually be headed to Europe as well. In fact, the given time frame was ‘early next year’ – that’s 2011 for you and me. So here we are, early this year, and the 7 Pro is already sold by O2 in Germany.
In the UK, no operator has picked it up yet, but that doesn’t stop third-party independent online retailer Clove from launching it. They have it in stock as of now, and it costs £432, VAT included. For that price, Clove even throws in a free HTC Bluetooth headset (which is a £30 value).
So of the two QWERTY-packing WP7 devices out there, one has finally made it to the UK, while the other is endlessly delayed. Those in dire need of a QWERTY-equipped WP7 device in the UK will probably opt to go for the HTC 7 Pro with its more traditional form factor, rather than the Dell Venue Pro, which, aside from having a rare form factor, isn’t even available. At least the WP7 market in the UK isn’t dominated by full-touchscreen slabs/slates anymore.
