Microsoft has revealed additional hardware partners for their Windows Phone 7 OS, announcing that Dell and HTC are now on the list of manufactuers who will be making Windows Phone 7 phones. This is good news for the company, who have already got Asus, Samsung and LG to pony up a few devices. You can expect something from each of the companies before the year is out; while no set date on the official launch day of Windows Phone 7 is keeping us in suspense. What we can expect though is a release for the “holidays,” that could mean as early as late November, if they want be nestled under the erect mass of harvested forest matter that is.
“We will offer the best aspects of Android and the best of the iPhone, giving users the flexibility of different form factors, but with the rigidity of apps that are guaranteed to work on every device that is out there” Greg Sullivan, senior product manager for Microsoft, told Pocket-lint. I’m most excited about what HTC and Samsung will bring to the table, both have been leading quite an impressive line-up with their Android devices, it can only get better from here.[Pocket-Lint]
