Good news for the countries not included in the first wave of Windows Phone 7 roll-outs. At launch only 5 languages are supported – English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. Dutch is not one of them, which had the boys over at Allaboutphones.nl in a bit of a tizzy. The Netherlands was also not one of the countries 17 where applications could officially be bought from the Windows Phone 7 marketplace.
Fortunately Microsoft Netherlands did respond rather reassuringly, saying â€œWindows 7 Phone is clearly intended to be rolled out globallyâ€ and â€œwe are going in the Netherlands preparing for the release just before Christmas and have Windows 7 Phone, with various machines.â€
From an expected October launch that would be Microsoft moving rather fast, and hopefully much of this will also apply to other countries left out of the launch party also.
