Clove is expecting to receive stock on 10 February — shortly before the start of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona — and is aiming to start shipping them out to customers the same day, a company service representative told ZDNet UK on Wednesday.

HTC announced the HTC 7 Pro — as one of five new Windows Phone 7 handsets — on 11 October with the intention of delivering it to European markets by the end of October 2010.

In the US, the device will be headed to the Sprint network "in the first half of 2011", the company said in the original announcement.
