More often than not, the way it works overseas is you pay more for a phone up front, then save on the carrier plan. But Vodafone UK's now offering (a day ahead of when we expected) a deal that you simply can't refuse: A free HTC HD2 with a data plan of at least £35. That's 4.3 inches of screen, 1GHz of Snapdragon processing power, Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro and the possibility of an upgrade to Windows Mobile 7 (that's still not official though, so simmer down). For free. Don't bet on finding that kind of deal in the U.S. [Vodafone via coolsmartphone]
