Windows Phone 7 launches with 5 new U.S. handsets on two carriers



Microsoft held their Windows Phone 7 launch today announcing nine new WP7 handsets that will be available by the end of the year with five of those available on November 8 in the U.S. on AT&T and T-Mobile. Here's the phone lineup:


HTC Surround -
Samsung Focus
LG Quantum

Dell Venue Pro

I haven't put my hands on any of these phones or the WP7 OS yet but based one what I've seen it looks really cool and in many ways it's a big departure from the Android and iPhone experience. Some things seem more advanced and some things seem on par.  With XBox Live integration and U-verse Mobile on the AT&T network these new phones and OS are sure to be popular with gamers and those who want a true mulitmedia experience on their phone.

Watch the video for a demo of the WP7 OS and click on the links for specs on the phones.
