HTC Gratia comes to UK - three months late

A Qwerty WinPho 7 handset too

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Various mobile phone sites are today touting HTC's introduction of its Gratia handset into the UK. They've all clearly forgotten HTC actually promised to do so in November 2010.

It didn't manage it, of course, and so now the Gratia, which runs Android 2.2 on a 600MHz processor and packs in both a 3.2in, 320 x 480 display and a 5Mp camera, will arrive here any day now.

HTC also said its 7 Pro, a Windows Phone 7 handset with a slide-out Qwerty keyboard will arrive here next month.

It didn't say which, if any, of the UK's operators will be offering the handsets.

The Pro was announced way back in October 2010 as part of HTC's contribution to the broader WinPho 7 launch. At the time, it was destined solely for the US, HTC said.

It has a 3.6in, 480 x 800 display, 1GHz processor, 5Mp camera, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS and HSPA 3G connectivity. ®
