Early Windows Mobile 7 phones will be GSM only

by Gareth Mankoo

Finally there’s word of the Windows Phone 7 and it seems that we will be seeing it in a GSM-only avatar for the first half of next year. So there will not be any scope of the phone expanding its 4G wings (if there were any) out to Sprint. It’s quite obvious why this would happen though. According to Greg Sullivan, Product Manager, there were trade-offs that had to be made in order to meet the schedule. So for a CDMA release we may have to wait a little longer than expected. However, this will give us enough time to study the phone and its capabilities before making the giant ever-hopeful 4G leap.
