Microsoft Lines Up AT&T, Orange for October Windows Phone 7 Launch

Microsoft has set a hard date for the launch of its new Windows Phone 7 operating system: October 11. “People familiar with the launch plans” tell The Wall Street Journal that the company will debut the OS at an event in New York that day and announce AT&T (T) as the exclusive carrier of the first smartphones to run it–one from HTC, another from LG and a third from Samsung.

The Journal pins the hardware street date for the week of November 8, but I’m told it will likely be earlier. Sources in a position to know say Windows Phone 7 smartphones will be in stores on October 21. They also say that Microsoft (MSFT) has lined up another exclusive carrier overseas: Orange.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
