T-Mobile HD7 now $99 on contract (limited time)

While we have seen AT&T's Windows Phone 7 lineup heavily discounted, even going for free by some 3rd party retailers, the HD7 has remained in the $150-200 range for awhile now (except for Wirefly and a few others).

Now the HD7 is at least temporarily discounted through T-Mobile themselves for a fair $99. Of course the usual rules apply: 2 year contact, etc. But we still dig this phone's 4.3" display even if the camera is kind of lousy & reception is mediocre.

  • You think this means they are clearing inventory to make room for a new model?
  • Nah, I think it means T-Mobile wised up to the heavy discount game AT&T is playing. They probably also realize now is the time to pounce, before Verizon and Sprint (finally) get WP7.
  • OK, I'm a little biased ;)... But for a phone, I don't the camera is that bad. Reception is better than any phone I've ever had. I have never had a dropped call with this phone, except in the few places I go where I know coverage was iffy at best to begin with.So the radio meter looses a few bars when I grip it. If call quality remains high, and data keeps flowing, does it really matter what the meter says?
