O2 Germany working on Windows Phone app; looking at November release

O2 Germany is working on an app for Windows Phone to match the offerings on both iOS and Android, according to a leaked email. The My O2 app exists as a beta and is currently being tested by members of the team. As well as being able to relay news of the app being in development, we've also got a release window, which is expected to be November. 

Initially, in the final version, functionality will include the ability to retrieve data, SMS or voice usage, as well as checking out what remains for that contracted month. That's the good news. The bad news? You'll not be able to download and enjoy the solution until it's released for public use. What's also interesting is how O2 touches on moving from BlackBerry to Windows Phone for private and business customers.

Telefónica and Microsoft are working on improving relations between the companies, offering consumers more choice when it comes to the range of smartphones available. We'll look to have more information on this app in the future as we draw closer to its release. WMPU received the following screenshots:
