Verizon won’t offer Windows Phone 7 at launch

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on September 16th, 2010

Verizon Wireless has confirmed to BusinessWeek that it will not be offering Windows Phone 7 devices when Microsoft launches the platform later this year. Windows Phone 7 won’t hit Verizon until 2011, leaving all of the Android heavy lifting to the Droid, at least through 2010.

AT&T is already a launch partner for Windows Phone 7, and Microsoft says that T-Mobile and Sprint are also on board, even if we don’t have exact details about when Windows Phone 7 devices will be offered on those carriers. Some are speculating that Windows Phone 7′s delays on Verizon Wireless may have to do with a rumored fall-out of the partnership over the KIN social phone launch.
