Asus Windows Phone 7 phone delayed to next year, possibly all WP7 devices?

wp7asusdelayed Northeast Securities analyst Ashok Kumar has told The Street that Asus’s Windows Phone 7 smartphone has been delayed, probably to early next year.

Production of the phone has been stopped temporarily. "The phone is still alive," says Kumar, but its arrival to the market will now probably be put off until early next year.

The cause of the delay is not known, but Kumar speculates that if it’s a software issue, it could affect all other OEMs, leading to delays across the board.

Of course this news come very soon after the announcement, and one has to assume when Steve Ballmer said that phones will arrive by the holiday season he already factored all such issues in.

Do you think Windows Phone 7 devices will arrive on time? Let us know below.
