Here's an interesting quote from an AT&T spokeswoman to PC World:

"We'll be the premier carrier for Windows Phone 7"

Like the "AT&T is getting 8 million Windows Phone 7 devices" rumor, we're not exactly sure what this means in reality, all we know is we like the sound of it.

Sprint and Verizon had no comment in regards to their Windows Phone 7 plans, outside of being named "partners" which as the article points out, means they could be more committed or less when the actual launch happens.  T-Mobile didn't reply.

The fact that the nation's largest carrier (love 'em or hate 'em) is standing firmly behind Microsoft is a great sign. Probably a good idea for AT&T too since it gets them away from the Apple-collusion controversy, just a tad.
