In order to allocate all of their resources to a global launch of WP7, Microsoft will not be making a CDMA version until the "first half of 2011". While GSM is the de facto global standard, ignoring Verizon and Sprint in the US cuts their user market in half.

By the time WP7 hits the CDMA carriers, the premium Android 3.0 phones will be blowing the WP7 phones out of the water. Only a precious few Verizon and Sprint customers will bother switching toAT&T or TMo for what appears to be a fiasco in the making. Anyone want to guess the over/under for AT&T iPhone users switching to WP7? I'm guessing it's like 10. Hmm... maybe that's too high.
