Windows Phone 7 is rumored to launch in Europe some time in October, but now it looks like it may be November for the US, as the guys over at Slashgear are reporting a launch date for the US of the 8th of November 2010.
According to Paul Thurrott, who has received the information for some ‘reliable sources’ the actual US launch date will be the 8th of November.
Microsoft is holding a special event in the US in New York on the 11th of October, many had thought this would be the launch date of Windows Phone 7, but apparently this is an unrelated event.
If Microsoft do intend to launch Windows Phone 7 in October in the UK and Europe, and November in US, it does seem a little strange to have different dates, and especially Europe being first, although this may have something to do with European smartphone manufacturers who are launching Windows Phone 7 devices.
