On Monday (Tuesday here in Oz) Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer stood on a stage in New York to announce the arrival (almost) to consumers of Windows Phone 7. A few hours later in Sydney the Australian announcement was made.
One of the things that bugs me a little are carrier exclusives. This is one of the great thing about the iPhone here in Australia, it’s available from all the carriers. It’s not exclusive to one. I feel a little sorry for friends in the US who can only use their iPhone on AT&T’s over burdened network.
