We have already given you the entire low-down of HTC’s Windows Phone 7 plans for India but it never hurts to share some official information coming our way. Today HTC officially announced the launch of the HD7, the first WP7 smartphone to be available in the country. Just like we reported, the HD7 is priced at Rs 29,990. HTC has tied up with Airtel for a special bundle that would give Airtel subscribers 2 GB of data usage per month for six months at just Rs 300. Mind you, as far as we know, Windows Marketplace is not yet working officially in India though we are told that there are ways to work around it. You might also like to check out the HTC 7 Mozart, which is also expected to be announced anytime now and we are hearing from our readers that it is already making its presence felt in some dealerships in the country.

Meanwhile, as far as other vendors go, our educated guesstimate pegs the launch of WP7 smartphones from LG and Samsung to wash up on Indian shores sometime in the New Year only.
