AT&T announced that its new Windows Phone 7.5 devices, the Focus S and Focus Flash by Samsung, will be available in AT&T stores starting this coming weekend, on Nov. 6. (Focus S is $199.99, Focus Flash is 49.99 with a two-year contract). The HTC Radar 4G is coming to T-Mobile USA Nov. 2 ($99.99 after rebate with a two-year contract).
Reviewing Windows Phone Mango last week, New York Time tech columnist David Pogue put it this way: “Windows Phone 7.5 is gorgeous, classy, satisfying, fast and coherent. The design is intelligent, clean and uncluttered. Never in a million years would you guess that it came from the same company that cooked up the bloated spaghetti that is Windows and Office.”
