Windows Phone 7 Launches In U.S. Today

At the beginning of October the tech world saw the release of Windows Phone 7 along with carriers and devices running on it. Today, November 8 in America, the launch of four handsets will be available to waiting customers.

For the rest of us in Europe we have been lucky enough to experience the devices hands on for the last few weeks, but for the U.S. they have had to wait a little longer. Today will see the launch of the Samsung Focus, HTC Surround, AT&T LG Quantum and T-Mobile HTC HD7. According to Chris Davies at SlashGear, the handsets will be GSM, but news is indicating that CDMA Windows Phone 7 Verizon and Sprint mobile devices will be released early next year.

So what can you look forward to with these four devices? All of them will incorporate 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, UMTS/WCDMA, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS with touch screen running WVGA. Users purchasing the HTC Surround and Samsung Focus will be able to enjoy these for a mere $199 with a two-year AT&T contract, whilst the HTC HD7 can be purchased with T-Mobile for the same price also with a two-year contract.

As well as this news today, SlashGear have reported on speculation surrounding the Dell Venue Pro and it’s subsequent release today.
