Windows Phone 7 was scheduled to land first internationally, but it's always a treat to hear the particulars. Orange UK has just (re)revealed that it'll be the exclusive carrier of HTC's 7 Mozart across the pond, and it'll be joined by Samsung's Omnia 7 as both go on sale tomorrow morning in Orange's Oxford Street shop -- fittingly, at 7am local time. Naturally, the carrier is going to blow out the launch, with each customer buying a WP7 handset to receive a complimentary Bluetooth headset... while supplies last, anyway. You'll also get a stockpile of Orange applications and services (like it or not), and we're told that each phone will be offered for zilch with a fresh contract starting at £35 per month (7 Mozart) / £40 per month (Omnia 7). Jealous, North America?
UK'S FIRST WINDOWS® PHONE 7s GO ON SALE AT ORANGE'S OXFORD STREET STORE TOMORROW AT 7:00AM
20th October 2010: The HTC 7 Mozart, available only on Orange, and the stylish HD Voice enabled Samsung Omnia 7 will go on sale from 7am tomorrow morning in Orange's Oxford Street shop (155-157 Oxford Street) – offering customers the opportunity to be the first to get their hands on a Windows® Phone 7 in the UK.
To help support the launch, Capital FM Breakfast Show presenters Johnny Vaughan and Lisa Snowdon, will head to the store following their morning breakfast show and will be offering prizes to those in store from 10am. Furthermore, anyone who buys a Windows Phone in the Oxford Street store tomorrow will receive a free Bluetooth headset whilst stocks last.
As Microsoft's key UK partner, Orange last week announced it is exclusively offering UK customers the sleek HTC 7 Mozart, as well as ranging the stylish Samsung Omnia 7 with Windows Phone 7.
Both phones feature quick-link access to the following Orange applications and services, which are integrated into Windows Phone's unique Start screen:
