With T-Moible and Sprint quiet about this whole Windows Phone 7 “Will it ever launch?” thing, AT&T has pretty much established itself as premier carrier, putting devices (Samsung and HTC for starters) that will be launched on the network in direct fire of the iPhone 4. What’s more now is that Verizon won’t have any Windows Phone 7 handsets at launch, or this year.
They’ll start in 2011. Which isn’t too far away, but still, peculiar. Perhaps VZW wants to bang out a few more Droids first?
The more factual response is actually what Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney mentioned to Bloomberg: [our] “relationship with Microsoft is solid”. So it is then!
