Those of you who have been drooling over Windows latest mobile escapade, your wait is nearly over. The HTC Surround and Samsung Focus will all be available on AT&T on November 8, only a week and a half from now. These two devices are only two of three Windows Phone 7 devices coming to AT&T. The LG Quantum should release around the same time as these, but the date has yet to be confirmed. We know AT&T is focusing on diversifying and broadening their smartphone horizons, and we also know they have a certain interest in Windows Phone 7. They've used the iPhone as their backbone for the past few years, but snagging some nice, flagship devices right at the launch of a WP7 should help them transition smoothly.
I have high hopes for the platform, and what it needs is solid hardware to accompany the sleek UI. I had a little hands-on time with the Surround yesterday, and I must say, HTC knocked it out of the park. Who out there is planning on going and picking one of these bad boys up on the 8th? I know I'm having a tough internal debate between my tech-fiend side and my budgeting conscience.
