It’s Official: Windows Phone 7 Launches With AT&T And T-Mobile On October 11th

Yes, you read that right. AT&T has been trumpeting its Windows Phone 7 handsets, but it looks like they’re not  the only ones ready to jump on the good ship Redmond. Engadget has confirmed that both AT&T and T-Mobile will be showing off  devices at the launch event next Monday.

This news comes on the same day that the Wall Street Journal runs an interview with Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer, about Windows Phone 7 and the company’s recent missteps in the mobile space. Unfortunately, the interview took place before Microsoft sued Motorola last week and before the announcement that Ballmer’s bonus was reduced because of the Kin failure.

The interview is an interesting read, and sheds light on… not much. When asked if he seriously thought about Microsoft selling its own handset, Ballmer replied, “I think about a lot of things.”

Ballmer does say that he feels the “wall-of-icons” is getting confusing for people and that the hubs in Windows Phone 7 will put the most important people in their customers’ lives “front and center.” It’ll be interesting to see if customers feel the same way about too many icons.

He also argues that Android isn’t completely free, reveals that he has an undergraduate degree in math, and refuses to make sales forecasts for Windows Phone 7.
