AT&T, Steve Ballmer at NYC Open House for Windows Phone 7--we'll be there

Looks like the other shoe just dropped as our invite was delivered for the big AT&T Windows Phone 7 launch at the Microsoft Open House in NYC one week from now. AT&T in the morning, T-Mobile in the afternoon.

Not only is AT&T there, but looks like Steve Ballmer and Ralph de la Vega (President/CEO of AT&T) are to deliver the keynote speech at 9am. Steve in person? Awesome.

The rest of the day will be us roaming around, playing with Xboxes, Kinects, Bings and we just got word we'll have an opportunity " check out all the Windows Phone 7 devices" as we'll be meeting with several OEMs.

No doubt we're excited as this event last year was a blast and you should be excited as we'll be covering this shindig from our unique perspective as Windows Phone geeks. We'll be running a live blog, interacting with you folks on Twitter and bringing some HD quality video to you from the event all day--and it's a holiday, so hopefully you have off and can follow along!
