According to this leaked document by the HTC HD7 will cost 79€ with a 24-month contract (contract fee: 20€/month). If you want to buy the HTC HD7 without a contract, you’ll have to pay about 559€.

So, let’s translate this into dollar at the current exchange rates..

24-month contract: ~$110 for the HTC HD7, monthly cost ~$28
Contract-free: ~$780

Important: Keep in mind, often companies sell their products in Europe for a much higher price. They tend to sell products at a 1:1 rate (which is of course outrageous, but people here still buy it). So it is very possible that you will only pay $100 with contract or $600 without contract in the US.

Release Date

More importantly is the release date: October 18th, 2010! So, if you’re lucky you will be able to get your HTC HD7 with Windows Phone 7 only a week after the release of Microsoft’s mobile OS.

Hardware Specs

The hardware specs of the HTC HD7 are supposed to very good:

1GHZ CPU, 576MB RAM, 4.3″ display (480 x 800 pixels solution), 5MP camera, WiFi + GPS
