Windows Phone - 16 September 2010

imageLooks like it’s not Verizon who is behind the delay. CNET has confirmed that it’s Microsoft who made a decision to hold off on any CDMA phones at launch saying that they had to prioritize. Didn’t know it was so hard to write it for CDMA but what do I now? Oh right – I now there won’t be a Sprint device at launch. That’s what I know. This takes away a lot of good will MS built up today.

CDMA is coming ‘first half of 2011’ so hold tight. What’s another few months at this point?

  1. To be fair, once Verizon wasn’t getting it, CDMA was pretty much out entirely. Sprint is a small market.

  2. I tend to agree with MS on this one. The thing I don’t agree with is pushing this out to Europe first. I suspect that had a lot to do with no CDMA support.

  3. @Chris-I think you’re exactly right. The pushing out to Europe first is what played a big part in the lack of CDMA. That and ATT stepping up to the plate to wholeheartedly embrace WP7. Say what you will but ATT has shown that they will prioritize a good phone.
