Windows Phone 7 GSM Only till 2011.

Verizon said earlier that it will not have any Windows Phone 7 devices until early 2011. Today Microsoft is confirming that by saying that Windows Phone 7 will only be on GSM devices. “Product manager Greg Sullivan told CNET that trade-offs had to be made in order to meet the schedule and GSM was prioritized since it’s used worldwide, but that CDMA devices would be available early next year”. This means that you should be able to get a WP7 device on T-Mobile but we doubt it will happen anytime soon. Unfortunately it looks like AT&T will be the only carrier of WP7 devices in the US, if you want decent coverage (Verizon) you will have to wait till 2011.
