Microsoft may have accidentally revealed that Windows Phone 7 will be released in October. The slip, if such it is, came from Microsoft VP for Marketing Mich Mathews during an advertising conference.
“I’m gonna ask rock star Kostas… to come on. And Kostas has brought with him Windows Phone 7, which we launch this October.”
To date, Microsoft had only indicated that we would see the first Windows Phone 7 phones in time for the 2010 holiday shopping season. Hopefully we can now expect to see Microsoft formally unveil Windows Phone 7 and the first devices to run it in October (much as it did last October with Windows Mobile 6.5).
