Windows Phone 7 May Hit October 11th

It looks as though the release date for Windows Phone 7 is going to be October 11th. While Microsoft have been lagging behind in the mobile race for some time now, next month could see them make the first steps towards taking some market share away from the current leaders, Google and Apple. With most companies except Apple and Nokia signed up to make WP7 devices there should be a good range of handsets to tempt customers into switching to Microsoft’s newest mobile operating system.

Even with rumoured devices from manufacturers such as HTC sounding extremely promising, combined with Microsoft’s marketing push to get people interested in Windows Phone 7, it will still be an uphill battle to compete with Android, iPhone, Blackberry and other rival mobile operating systems. The interface does set WP7 apart from the competition and it’s quite possible that it will find itself with a strong following as a result of the minimalist and finger friendly design.

With so many mobiles being recycled and replaced every year there is plenty of room in the market for Microsoft to sell a lot of phones, but they will need to prove to consumers that they can offer something that Apple and Google don’t if they want to take a real share of the mobile market.
