Windows Phone 7 handsets get UK launch tomorrow

Microsoft's mobile OS to launch in the UK across multiple networks

Despite lacking the highstreet infrastructure of fierce rivals Apple, Microsoft is attempting to emulate similar launch hype seen by the iPhone 4 when it gives the new Windows Phone 7 devices their global launch in the UK tomorrow, Thursday October 21st.

Network provider Orange will be kicking off events at 7am when it will open the doors of its flagship Oxford Street store to eager consumers looking to grab themselves either the Samsung Omnia 7 or the network exclusive HTC 7 Mozart. Those in attendance at Orange’s early opening will also walk away with a bag for life and other treats whilst stocks last, the network has reported.

Orange’s other stores around the country will opening their doors at regular trading hours alongside Three and T-Mobile both of which will also be offering customers the chance to buy the Samsung Omnia 7, the most widely available Windows Phone 7 handset to launch tomorrow.

Vodafone and O2, both of which will open their stores to the public at normal times tomorrow will be stocking Phone 7 handsets as they offer their individual network exclusive Windows powered pocket blowers.

Whilst O2 has exclusive rights to the HTC Windows Phone 7 powerhouse that is the HTC HD7, Vodafone will have two exclusives to offer, the HTC 7 Trophy and LG’s addition to Phone 7 launch day, the LG Optimus 7.

Although the HTC Pro 7 and the Dell Venue Pro have both been announced as upcoming Windows Phone 7 handsets, neither will be available at tomorrow’s global launch with the Dell device expected in the UK on November 8th whilst the HTC Pro 7 remains undated.
