"Five Windows Phone 7 devices from HTC are rumored to have found homes with various wireless carriers. Conflipper is reporting that the HTC Gold_W is headed to Sprint (the "_W" refers to "World phone" i.e. CDMA & GSM, like the Touch Pro 2), the HTC Schubert and Mondrian are headed to Telus (Mondrian going to Rogers as well), and the HTC Spark_W is being picked up by Bell Mobility and Verizon. Finally, another device, HTC Scorpio aka HTC Olympian is also going to Verizon/Bell Mobility."
Well, even though Windows Phone 7 devices are months away, it's still good to see carriers showing interest. I'm excited to see exactly what these devices look like and what they'll have to offer. Perhaps with all the hype around Windows Phone 7, and if they have a good, cool, hip advertising campaign, maybe these devices will give people that other choice. By then the latest iPhone and Android device will have been out for a while and people will be looking for something new. How many of you are at least considering a Windows Phone 7 device later this year or early next year?
