AT&T excited about Windows Phone 7, pleased with sales

att-logoWhile Microsoft refused to discuss the sales of Windows Phone 7, AT&T’s Glenn Lurie was slightly less reticent.

At the Dive Into Mobile conference he denied the company was concerned about the loss of iPhone exclusivity, saying the company was pleased with the sales of Android and Windows Phone 7 devices.

"We have come out very publicly and said we’re not concerned about it at all … If and when that ever happens, we are in a position to compete with anybody who has any device any time," he said.

“There are a lot of variables inside our base. The key is having a lot of devices that people want. We’re very excited about the new Android devices. We’re excited about Windows Phone 7. We’re the only provider in the US that has every OS."

AT&T has been rumoured to have ordered 8 million Windows Phone 7 handsets for 2011, and we have seen rumours of the HTC HD7 and Asus E600 both coming to the 93 million subscriber strong network.

Maybe AT&T itself has slightly more confidence in Windows Phone 7 than Microsoft itself?
