Tomorrow: Microsoft & WP7 at Sprint Developer Conference

As if we needed more proof that Sprint is embracing Windows Phone 7 (as opposed to Verizon), it looks like Microsoft is getting two sessions at the Sprint Developer Conference in Santa Clara, CA tomorrow (October 26th).

First session is just an overview with the second concentrating on building apps for the new OS. Heck, they even gush a bit saying "We are very excited to be partnering with Sprint to deliver some great Windows Phone Experiences.". Combined with that earlier FCC device approval news and things are looking up for Sprint users.

Click this link: http://developer.sprint.com/site/global/community/events/2010devcon/2010...
its the sprint developer site... then click the Sponsors tab... you'll see that Windows Phone is a Premeier Sponsor, along with MeeGo for some reason...

Interesting and nice find!

Somebody please gag me! Microsoft apparently wasn't excited enough to spend time getting a CDMA version of their phones out for the first release, now they are oh so excited?? Please.

Eh, it's always easy to criticize when you're not doing the development of a whole new mobile OS. Microsoft is like everyone else in the world: limited time and limited resources. I'm sure if they could have done both GSM and CDMA they would have--it's in the best interests to do so. They're not delaying CDMA out of spite or insincerity. Personally, I'd be more concerned about how your carrier (Verizon) seems nonplussed by Microsoft's new OS, regardless of availability (they seem to be all about focusing on the iPhone).

GP07 says:

If CDMA comes a few weeks later is that such a bad thing really? It's not like Verizon has been talking up WP7 anyways compared to this news with Sprint they've been pretty quiet about it.

So ask yourself who cares more at this point because it really seems like Verizon is just fine sleeping with Google and cheating on the side with Apple, or trying to.
