As U.S. Cellular promised last week, the carrier is launching its first Windows Phone 7 device this summer (and by this summer, we mean tomorrow). The carrier announced today that the HTC 7 Pro will be available on June 14 for $199.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate.

Similar to the HTC Arrive for Sprint, the smartphone features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a tilting 3.6-inch, WVGA touch screen. The HTC 7 Pro also has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, along with the Xbox Live and Zune integration and other goodies that come with Windows Phone.

The HTC 7 Pro will require a data plan, which starts at $79.99 per month for 5GB of data, unlimited text and multimedia messages, and 450 voice minutes. Customers on one of U.S. Cellular's Belief plans will be able to get the smartphone at the $200 price without having to sign a new contract.
