Microsoft has officially launched and released their Windows Phone 7 in the United States with a new campaign: challenging consumers to Get a Grip. I’m going to go see if I can get a hands on with this phone today, take some pics, and see if it would work for me. If so, I’m probably looking at an upgrade as soon as Verizon can get off it’s high horse and start offering its consumers what they want and not drag it out for a year or two.
As Windows Phone 7 goes on sale in AT&T and T-Mobile USA stores across the United States, Microsoft Corp. has commissioned and released the findings of a recent Harris Interactive® survey showing the surprising ways mobile phones have become a part of the fabric of Americans’ lifestyles — a point illustrated by the fact that 55 percent of all phone owners surveyed age 18–35 have used their phone in a bathroom. To commemorate the U.S. launch of Windows Phone 7, Microsoft is challenging consumers to get a grip on their mobile phone habits.
