Microsoft says the UK's major mobile network operators – Vodafone, O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Three – will be offering Windows Phone 7 devices when the mobile operating system launches later this year. In addition, The Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4u will also be selling the phones. However, a UK launch date still hasn't been confirmed.
Alex Reeve, Director of Microsoft UK's Mobile Business Group, said "Following our announcement at Mobile World Congress that Orange will be our lead partner, it is wonderful now to have all of the UK's network operators supporting the launch of Windows Phone 7. This means we can provide network choice and also a range of phones across networks for customers to choose from, all with the power of Windows Phone 7."
