HTC HD7 Priced

The HTC HD7 has been priced.  At least with the European wireless carrier O2.

A leaked pricing list indicates the HD7 will run you 559 Euros out of contract (about $730 US Dollars) and with contractual discounts, as low as 79 Euros (about $104 US Dollars).  The pricing list also indicates availability during week 42 which is the week after Microsoft's October 11th event.

So, is $730 a little on the steep side for the HD7?  Do you think the price will drop or does this open the door for LG and Samsung to offer their Windows Phone 7 devices at a more competitive price?  Will T-Mobile (expected to offer the HD7 possibly as the HD3) discount their prices as much? 

Luckily, October is right around the corner.

If you can actually walk into a store and purchase this device for $730 your question about price may be relevant but you will never see this device on sale for that price in the US in a B&M store. A straight conversion is NEVER correct, why make it sound as if this will be the US price?

I'm going to make a guess and say this thing will be $199 on contract. $549 off, and $699 unlocked.

Prices in EU include a 20% VAT tax, so it works out to 1:1 EUR/USD pretty much all the time.

Thanks for the information. Did not know about the VAT.

Can we get some specs and a picture of this or what? I'd like to see what it looks like and what it has for that price.

We're all waiting on what the "HD7" actually *is*, lol.

Except this baby won't arrive in our shore before the end of the 1st quater of 2011.

I agree with one of the comments. Straight conversion pricing is not always correct, unless you want the Euro version.

I would expect this phone to be the usual pricing (i.e. about $200 with a contract, and $600 without a contract). Price really has not changed for new smartphone. It's not like you will get 50% off/$20,000 on a new Lexus because of the recession.

Furthermore, I am not too sure about getting a WP7 phone, and being locked in for two years for a uni-tasker OS, while dual core phone will be the next thing for 2011 and on.

VAT levels are not the same in all EU countries but Germany has a 19% VAT. Without VAT the price is 452.79 Euros.
