    I'm hearing all this stuff about AT&T and the Titian. I, see only one handset on T-MO one on each of the other carriers, and I'm thinking screw Yahoo MS should be looking at hooking T-MO perhaps with a partner maybe HTC they have money to burn. or even Nokia. in no way would we want then to stop selling Android devices but rather MS could have all of the window devices under one roof sort of saying. Just a though seams to me that buying T-MO would be a much better ventures than buying Yahoo. MS could also have a good platform for MS-TV or something of that nature, looking forward with the coming win8 Tablets. Just a thought.

    That would never survive Anti-Trust inquiries. Same as Google, especially given Nokia's position as a premier HW partner.

    Also, the financial strain of running a cell phone carrier could be damaging to even Microsoft/Apple/Google. It would take way too much money to build out T-Mobile's network to be competitive with AT&T, nevermind Verizon.

    Plus, it won't fix T-Mobile's 3G band issue. They make it very hard for people to bring phones from other carriers/imported from overseas to their network and have a good experience. EDGE just doesn't cut it anymore for most people, given how data hungry smartphones are.

    First off, T-Mobile has two WP7 devices. The HD7 and the Radar. The HD7 was the first WP7 device to hit store shelves (In the U.S.). Secondly, Microsoft DOES have a partnership with Nokia.

    Once it's completely gone AT&T will be the only company with more than 1 on the shelf. T-Mobile is the only other company to have more than 1 WP7 device. I am not just talking about right now, I mean all-time.

    If you want more devices to be offered by carriers, buying the carriers isn't business savy. :D You need to make a big impact on the market (which MS are on their way to doing), then the carriers will be asking you for your variety of devices.

    The HD7 is no longer listed on Tmo's site. Only WP7 shown in the radar.
