GSM-only Windows Phone 7 in 2010?

Written on September 19, 2010 by Adam Eve

0 person

When Windows Phone 7 arrives later this year, it will be sold globally, but only for GSM networks. What causes the delay?

Microsoft has opted to delay until 2011 the CDMA version of their Windows Phone 7, and the handset that will arrive later this year will be sold globally for GSM networks only. This decision means that, though GSM is widely used in Europe, Windows Phone 7 will not be available on Sprint and Verizon. With AT&T and T-Mobile as the remaining potential US launch partner, the former has its plans of being a part of WP7 release while the latter remains to be seen. This settlement has been made by the company due to the fact that they still have to finish re-writing their operating system. Still, the company acknowledged that they have to move quickly to compete against iPhones and Android-based handsets. Microsoft is slated to tout Windows Phone 7 on an “open house” event in New York on October 11. However, the devices won’t be immediately available.

Will Windows Phone 7 Have AT&T As Its Premier Carrier?

Written on July 31, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

AT&T is claiming it bigtime: "We will be Windows Phone 7's premier carrier." We will have to see that until the arrival of WP7 in the market, as there have been no reported verification messages coming from Microsoft itself.

AT&T is all abuzz about the coming of Windows Phone 7 to the network. The mobile operator claims it will be “the” premier carrier of the anticipated Microsoft-based smartphone once it arrives in the market. There are news of AT&T signing up for 8 million pieces of the gadget. With the reported unsure relations between Microsoft and market leader Verizon, the competitor could have the chance to make true its claim.

AT&T can attribute its growth mostly to iPhones, but is this just the way of the network to go around iPhone, and Android, with which it has weaved unstable relations – by striking another big deal with an upcoming rival phone?
