Windows Phone 7 “Holiday Release” == Labor Day?

On February 15, Microsoft released a http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2010/feb10/02-15MWC10PR.mspx saying that Windows Phone 7 phones are in the manufacturing queue and that: Partners have already started building phones; customers will be able to purchase the first phones in stores by holiday 2010. So, what do we make of this news from Engadget?

September? September? So, “holiday 2010” is, what, Labor Day? Engadget itself speculates about a Halloween target. But, since Halloween does not rate a day off, I’ll accept either Labor Day or Veterans Day.

So, are you excited about Windows Phone 7 Series? What is this “Series” business anyway? As a person who some may have a considered to be a Windows Mobile fan-boy for many years, I have yet to gain a sense of excitement about Windows Phone 7 Series.
