But Wait, There’s More
AT&T customers will soon have another Windows Phone option, as the carrier is prepping the HTC HD7S, a slightly re-branded version of the HD7 which T-Mobile released last year.

And, of course, AT&T already has three models running Microsoft’s mobile OS: the HTC Surround, Samsung Focus, and LG Quantum. All of these hit store shelves last fall.
