Microsoft’s WP7 event just got over and the company has announced nine new WP7 based handsets for the holiday season. These nine handsets are slated to launch Microsoft’s assault on iOS and Android in more than 30 countries worldwide. These nine handsets will be available in selected European and Asian markets by October 21.
“We have a beautiful line up in this first wave of Windows Phone 7 handsets,” said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer at Microsoft. “Microsoft and its partners are delivering a different kind of mobile phone and experience – one that makes everyday tasks faster by getting more done in fewer steps and providing timely information in a ‘glance and go’ format.”
Of the nine phones announced today, HTC leads the pack with 4 handsets HTC 7 Surround, HD7, 7 Trophy, Mozart – while LG (Optimus 7 and Quantum) and Samsung (Omnia 7 and Focus) jointly share the second sport with Dell coming filling in the last slot with its Venue Pro.
