First U.S. customer to buy Windows Phone 7: Richard Mungeer

Though we don't know how Microsoft exactly calculated this guy to be the first (perhaps at the Microsoft flagship store?) but evidently Richard Mungeer is the first official person to buy a Windows Phone 7 device , replacing his iPhone (snicker). Anyways, a big congrats to him and welcome to the team!
