Windows Phone 7 phones selling out in Europe Windows Phone 7 handsets in Europe are selling extremely well, say multiple sources, with Microsoft already seeing supply shortages.
Carrier Orange has started pre-orders for the handsets, even giving customers 20 HMV vouchers as a way to entice them to hold their pre-orders until new stock comes in.

The new devices, from HTC and Samsung are sold out in most retail shops.

Samsung's supply issues seem to be thanks to a shortage of AMOLED acreens and the HTC issues seem to be stemming from software problems.

Windows Phone 7 is set to launch next week here in the States, and that may be the bigger test of how popular the devices really are.

Well I'm sure that there will be a big demand for windows phone 7 in America because these days people just seem to like buying new things no matter whats so good about it. Samsung has really been having a lot of issues with their screen shortages, their not even reliable for themselves.

I'm actually curious about the new Windows7 mobile OS. I'm going to give it a chance. If Windows 7 is a clue this could actually be good.
