So this is rather interesting. You have The Samsung Mobile Event on the 8th, you have Windows Phone 7 launching on the 8th, you have several Android devices like the MyTouch 4G launching on the previous week, and if what Sprint is confirming is true, pre-orders for the HTC 7 Pro for Microsoft employees starts on December 8th. I’m just saying, 8 seems to be rather popular.
This rumor/confirmation seems real enough, as Microsoft said no CDMA Windows Phone 7 phones until 2011, and Sprint themselves stating no HTC 7 Pro until sometimes in 2011. Either way, I wouldn’t mind seeing it in action, rather than a non-functional hardware prototype when it was announced.
