While we're in the final lap of the pre-Windows Phone 7 launch, it's not too shocking to see WP7 devices start to populate carrier's invoice systems and that's what we have here for our UK brethren. 

The "ultras slim" HTC 7 Trophy (seen here), a solid looking device, just showed up in Vodafone's network as a contract handset, as the picture clearly states. Featuring a 1GHz CPU, 8GB internal storage and a  3.8", 16million color screen, looks to be a decent starter phone for many.

No info on pricing or exact availability, though we're sure "in the next few weeks" is a safe bet.

[Thanks, Dave, for the pic!]
