Five new phones with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 will launch in the U.S. in time for the holiday sales season, the company announced today. The new mobile operating system, which offers a dramatically different look and feel from past Windows Mobile designs, will go on sale worldwide with a total of nine devices available by the end of the year across the globe. In the U.S., HTC will offer the HTC Surround on AT&T and the HTC HD7 on T-Mobile. Samsung and LG will sell their first Windows Phone 7 phones, the Samsung Focus and the LG Quantum, only on AT&T. Dell will offer its second smartphone for the U.S. market, the Dell Venue Pro, on T-Mobile. All of the new phones will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, including the Samsung Focus, even though Samsung uses its own branded Hummingbird processor on its Galaxy S Android devices. As previously reported the original launch group includes only GSM carriers, but Microsoft says Verizon Wireless and Sprint will launch Windows Phone 7 devices in 2011.
