Our magic ball was true: Windows Phone 7 in NYC on October 11th; T-Mobile there too

We've been saying it for weeks now: Microsoft will be launching Windows Phone 7 in New York City on October 11th and while others doubted, it looks to be confirmed by none other than Microsoft.

What's even more odd, is that T-Mobile is the featured guest and we bet a certain HTC HD7 will be the star. Guess that rumor we heard about AT&T's exclusivity being only two-weeks may be accurate after all:

Some confusion though: there may be two events, one for the big media, the second for the public (Edit: first event is the AT&T Open House). Either way, we'll be there at 3pm doing our best to cover what we can, while you sit back and relax.

  • Snap to Thurrott!! Nice to see you guys on top of it!
  • Now I'm waiting to see if Thurrot posts anything about this bit of news. Heh. I hope they surprise us with something new, or maybe more beefier specs on the devices we know about already would be nice.
  • Actually he now claims to have predicted this in the first place. Not sure if he's correct but I do remember him posting and supposedly claiming that Oct 11 would NOT be about WP7. So who was first? Time to get out the rolling pins, ladies!
  • lol, no comment. Thurrott's a good guy.
  • I think I'm going to head ther for the public showing....
