November 8th is creeping ever closer, and aside from it marking the beginning of yet another long, drawn-out week in the working world, it's also the first day
you can get your paws around a Windows Phone 7 device from AT&T. Much in the same way that it did before subsequent iPhone launches
, the carrier has come forward with a few vital pieces of information to chew on before making any incorrect assumptions. Company representative Warner May confirmed to Phone Scoop
that online sales for Windows Phone 7 devices
(the Samsung Focus
and HTC Surround
) would indeed go live on launch day, debunking rumors that the phones would only be available for the grabbing in retail locations. Furthermore, we're told that no pre-orders are being accepted via B&M / online -- a logical move given the chaos that ensued
from the iPhone 4 pre-order rush. More on the launch as we get it.
