While we all were getting excited about an October launch for Windows Phone 7, it appears the excitement will be over seas.
Microsoft's COO Kevin Turner recently gave a presentation on the new phone and in talking about release time frames stated, "October likely across Europe, November likely across the U.S.".
No explanation on why the U.S. markets will play second chair for the release. Maybe the wireless carriers need more time to "brand" their Windows Phone 7 device. But as closed the WP7 system is supposed to be, should this be an issue?
Regardless of the reasoning, one can't help but be a little disappointed with this news. We can only hope that with the extra month Microsoft will have, they will be able to release a more complete Windows Phone 7 package to the U.S. markets.
