It seems Windows Phone 7 is closer than we thought judging by the leaked roadmap of the Australian carrier Telstra. It hints of an unannounced HTC Mozart running WP7, which is expected in October.
So far there was no official launch date of Windows Phone 7 OS, but this leaked Telstra's roadmap shows HTC Mozart is targeting an October launch.
Even more, Mozart will be sold for free on a AUS $49 plan (43 US dollars).
HTC Mozart pictured in this roadmap is definitely a Desire mockup, but as the rumor has it, the image is close to the real deal and Mozart will also be heading for T-Mobile US.
It looks Windows Phone 7 is close to release and will not wait until the holiday season after all.
