    The ATT website does not even list this phone in it's catalog of Windows Phone devices.
    That's because it hasn't been released yet. Just announced.

    I was hoping I would at least be able to pre order it and have it shipped out on Saturday for a Monday arrival. Oh well, one more day isn't a huge deal after waiting over a year for a Windows Phone.

    It is pretty funny the devices AT&T chooses to go up for pre-order before it comes out. Remember earlier this year, the HTC Status? That godawful android phone with the facebook button, and yet they thought people would be lining up on the pre-orders for it.

    Hah yeah, but it sure gave me alot of satisfaction to see it fail. I wouldn't want anything to do with Facebook.

    That's because the HTC Status is possibly the ugliest phone ever made.

    AT&T isn't offering pre orders for the Focus S most likely because Windows phone represents about 1% of the market, and there are very few people seeking out WP7. They push what sells, and WP7 doesn't sell.

    Bingo. I'm still kinda shocked that MS is being so lackadaisical with their OS. Release a flagship phone for god's sake.

    Nah, not really. They honestly choose random phones for pre-order. I don't remember there being a pre-order for the Galaxy SII just a sign-up page to be notified of when it was released and that was by far the most anticipated device for a very good part of this year. The devices that are popular now just get those fancy sign-up pages. So, the fact that you don't see a page showing the Focus S as coming Nov. 6th with those cool graphics to make it look like "Wow this is a cool phone" kind of shows that the marketing just isn't there.

    I'll be there with bells on! I have been bugging my local retail store, so they know what to expect. I even know who will be opening Sunday morning. 80% sure I'll be getting the S, but I really need to get them in my hands before ruling out the Flash.

    I can't freakin' wait!!

    Hopefully Nokia's US offerings will make for a nice poster-boy for WP7.

    I am undecided as well. I have to get both the Samsung Focus S and Blackberry Bold 9900 in my hands before I can really decide between the two.

    It will be a tough choice that's for sure. On one hand, you have WP7 which is backed by Microsoft and has a clear sense of direction, and a pretty, innovative OS. On the other hand, you have the 9900, with it's amazing keyboard, superior build materials, and iconic blackberry OS.
