Windows Phone 7 is really building up a head of steam, as AT&T and Microsoft are said to be planning a debut event for new handsets on October 11
in the US, to be followed by a retail launch in the week commencing November 8. A trifecta of launch devices is on tap, says the Wall Street Journal
, with one each from LG
, and AT&T is unsurprisingly
fingered as the exclusive
early carrier for WP7 goodness. In exchange for that little favor, Microsoft will receive AT&T's "marketing support
" in pushing the message out about Windows Phone 7's release. So long as nobody decides that home party packs
are a good idea, we'll be cool with whatever.
