Good news for our friends down-under in Australia and New Zealand, it looks like you'll be getting the HTC HD7 (but not the "S" variant) on March 29th. In an official press release, the carrier announced all the details:
“We are pleased to announce the HTC HD7 will be available exclusively on the Telstra Next G® Network in March,” said Ben Hodgson, Country Manager, HTC Australia and New Zealand. “HTC has shown strong leadership in developing Windows® based devices in the past, illustrating our ability to be first-to-market. The HTC HD7 continues along this tradition with its focus on providing the ultimate multimedia experience coupled with a nice simple user interface and access to a broad range of useful applications.”
The HTC HD7 is available for RRP $768 which can be repaid over 24 months when purchased in conjunction with a Consumer Telstra Next G® Cap plan or a Telstra Business Mobile PLUS Plan. It is available from 29 March from Telstra Stores and partners.
While it makes no mention of the 'NoDo' update, we would be very surprised if this HD7 didn't come with the latest OS build already on it, making it even more of a great deal for first-time WP7 adopters.
Thanks, Soundman, for the heads up!
