In an interview at the Microsoft X’10 event in Toronto, Microsoft Canada Mobility Solutions Manager Greg Milligan confirmed that the Canadian launch of Windows Phone 7 will occur at the same time as that in the US. No specific dates were mentioned but the North American launch is expected to occur in November. Milligan indicated that multiple operators are on board with a number of devices to be offered from manufacturers including LG, HTC and Samsung. Pricing is expected to range from CA$99 to CA$199 with a three-year plan.

Dell and other unnamed manufacturers are expected to have devices available later.
