AT&T + Microsoft = Windows Phone Launch On October 11st

WSJ:

Microsoft will receive the marketing support of AT&T, which will be the initial exclusive U.S. carrier to sell the Windows Phone 7 smartphones. AT&T plans to sell the devices the week of Nov. 8. Initially, the carrier will offer three handsets—one each made by Samsung Electronics Co., LG Electronics Inc., and HTC Corp.—as it looks to diversify its portfolio of mobile devices beyond the iPhone.

AT&T seems to be the exclusive carrier for Windows Phone. Maybe AT&T is losing Apple next year. via Engadget
