Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference should bring new Windows Phone 7 announcements, possibly RTM

Windows Phone 7 going RTM soon?

Microsoft’s yearly Worldwide Partner Conference is starting tomorrow, and while Microsoft has much to talk about, such as Windows Server, Azure and Business Dynamics, what everyone in the press want to hear about the company’s mobile strategy, which recently had a high profile knock with the cancellation of the KIN project.

We know Windows Phone 7 will be forming part of the keynote to the conference, with Brandon Watson, the face of the Windows Phone 7 Developer Experience Team, having a walk-on role.

While Microsoft have been trickling out information about Windows Phone 7, the company has made a firm commitment to releasing developer handsets this month, and there is some expectation these handsets will carry the final OEM version of the software, which would make the WPC the perfect occasion for a Release to Manufacturer announcement for the software.

Thousands of partners from more than 100 countries are expected to attend, with Bill Clinton, former US president, being the official guest speakers. The conference will run through till Thursday.
