Marketing push ahead of US launch
AT&T appears to be preparing its retail stores for the Windows Phone 7 launch scheduled for Monday. Images posted on WMPowerUser suggest the devices will be featured on an entire 'Wall of Windows Phone,' which includes an Xbox 360 and a notebook computer, among other promotional materials.
Separate rumors corroborate previous reports detailing Microsoft's reimbursement program for employees. The company is reportedly asking workers to refrain from purchasing a Windows Phone 7 device prior to November 18, although pre-orders through authorized channels can be initiated prior to the 18th, an anonymous source has told wpcentral. The program will allow workers to choose their own device and carrier, with full reimbursement from Microsoft.
