Windows Phone 7

According to USA Today Windows Phone 7 is launching on October 11:

It’s about to be put up or shut up time for Microsoft in mobile. On October 11, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and AT&T Mobility & Consumer Markets CEO Ralph de la Vega will be conducting a New York City press conference to spill the beans on the widely anticipated Windows Phone 7 smartphones.

I’m looking forward to being able to buy my own Windows Phone 7. The engineering development hardware I’ve been carrying around for the last year always seems to have something wrong with it that “will be fixed before it’s released”. Some had great sound and camera but poor Wi-Fi reception. Others had great Wi-Fi but poor GPS reception. It was good enough for development but now I’m ready for the real thing.

I know some people that need a new phone for Christmas too. It’ll be awesome.


Full disclosure: I work for Microsoft on the Windows Phone 7 project.

1 thought on “Windows Phone 7

  1. One of the great things about Microsoft is that it is a driving force in the technology center. I believe that Windows Phone 7 will be great in a tablet PC. Seriously, if Microsoft release a tablet PC running Windows Phone 7 and kept the price point under 400 dollars it would smoke the iPad.
