  1. AT&T will be the exclusive carrier for Windows Phone 7 when it launches in the US. "Microsoft will receive the marketing support of AT&T, which will be the initial exclusive US carrier to sell the Windows Phone 7 smartphones," according to The Wall Street Journal. AT&T will initially ship three Windows Phone 7 handsets: one from Samsung, LG, and HTC.

    Keep in mind this is just at launch, and this is just in the US. WP7 will spread to more carriers the following year.

    Why would you do that? If iPhone owners complain about anything its AT&T, why go the same route?
  6. Seriously, this is a major fail because AT&T is overwhelmed. They should have a simultaneous launch with T-Mobile. I was looking forward to this but Im not going back to AT&T.

    Whoever AT&T has negotiating these contracts has got to be the most persuasive bastard alive.
