"Verizon Wireless and Sprint will start selling Windows Phone 7s by the end of June...In his keynote Wednesday night, Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said the software would be ready for Verizon and Sprint. Today, I spoke with Aaron Woodman, director of the mobile communications business atr Microsoft, who said devices would be ready on both networks by June 30."
Unhappy with AT&T and T-Mobile? On another network but hankering for Windows Phone 7? You'll have to wait awhile, but news from CES 2011 indicates that Microsoft is working with Sprint and Verizon to get WP7 handsets by the end of the 2nd quarter of 2011. There's nothing yet beyond this bare news, like pricing plans or subsidies, and it's a little longer than expected, but having some official confirmation on the timing is nice - time to save up the pennies!
