AT&T Wireless To Offer Motorola/Microsoft Powered Phone

Everyone seems to be writing about how AT&T Wireless is about to announce that they’re plans to offer a Motorola mobile phone powered by Microsoft’s phone OS – which of course is a big deal for Microsoft as they struggle to find carriers and phone makers to work with. Motorola had already announced plans to offer the Microsoft-enabled phone, so that’s not a huge surprise. It’s also not that surprising that it’s AT&T Wireless doing the deal, as the two companies have partnered before. Now the real question is how will the devices be accepted in the marketplace. My guess is they’ll probably end up doing fairly well – as consumers will recognize the interface.
