AT&T, the self-proclaimed "premier" WP7 carrier, is nowhere to be found

Speculations of an October 11 unveiling for the Windows Phone 7 have been confirmed. Microsoft has sent out invitations to a function, not-so-mysteriously called "Windows Phone 7 Worldwide Launch Event," set for a week from today in New York City.

The description for the event says, "We will provide an insider's look at Windows Phone 7 and the Microsoft experience it brings to life." 

AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega will help to headline the event giving credence to the carrier's claims that the company will be the "premier" Windows Phone provider. In addition, the 3:30 - 4:30 time slot is dedicated to T-Mobile. Representatives from the fourth-largest carrier will provide "an exclusive showing of T-Mobile powered Windows Phone 7 devices." That's right. "Devices," plural.

Of course, none other than Steve Ballmer will be there to kick off one of Microsoft's biggest product launches of the year. There will be a raffle at 4:30, so it's safe to assume that at least a few lucky attendees will be walking out with live WP7 handsets, one of which may be the just spec-ed HTC Mozart. Thanks to Engadget, here's what we know about the Mozart: 

  • 119 x 60.5 x 11.9 mm 
  • 3.7" TFT LCD (800x480)
  • 1GHz CPU
  • 8MP camera with Xenon flash
  • 720p video recording
  • 1300mAh battery
  • 8GB of memory
  • Surround sound support
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • A-GPS
  • 802.11n Wi-Fi

Engadget is reporting that the Mozart will be coming to the U.K. in late October, while WP7 handsets most likely won't find their ways stateside until November. 

The pressure is on for Microsoft to deliver after it held a mock funeral for the iPhone and Blackberry in anticipation for WP7, though the service was more appropriate for Microsoft's own failed Kin. It will be interesting to see whether early adopters will be able to overcome WP7's known shortcomings.
