It is now becoming very clear that we will not see any new Windows phone 7 smartphones until the fall at the earliest, with Samsung for example saying they felt their current handsets were only mid-way through its hardware cycle.
The current synchronization of the OEMs are in part an artefact of the launch handsets all being released at the same time, and it is clear no OEM want to obsolete their current handsets until around 12 months have passed.
Of course having bought a handset, a current Windows Phone 7 owner may be happy that their handset will not be superseded very soon.
How do our readers feel about this? Let us know in the poll below.
