Spain on board with Windows Phone 7, Toshiba still in the game?

The Economista reports from sources close to Microsoft that the southern European country should be seeing Windows Phone 7 handsets on launch day on the 21 October 2010.

According to ElEconomista handsets should be available from all the big carriers in the Spanish market, including Movistar, Orange and Vodafone.

The handsets will initially be from usual suspects HTC, LG and Samsung, but they expect a second wave of handsets from Dell and also, intriguingly Toshiba.

Toshiba was one of the original launch OEMs, but not much has been heard from the company since.  Hopefully a recent mention indicated handsets running the OS are still on the way.

Windows Mobile remains a popular smartphone operating system in Spain, still holding around 11.9% of the market according to a recent survey, making it the second biggest mobile smartphone OS next to Nokia, and it will therefore hopefully also be a market where the new OS will see a lot of traction.
