Sorry Windows Phone 7 fans, no Pandora for you?

Sorry Windows Phone 7 fans, no Pandora for you? Earlier this year, Microsoft proclaimed that its Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system would be getting the popular free music streaming service Pandora.
It appears this week, however, that Pandora may have had a change of heart, possibly stopping development of an app for the new operating system.

In a Tweet to its followers, the company said a WP7 app was out of the question, before backpedaling later and saying: "I’m not sure if/when we will be available on [Windows Phone 7]. Appreciate everyone’s enthusiastic suggestions. I’m passing the feedback on."

Pandora's largest rivals, Last.fm and Slacker, have already released Windows Phone 7 applications.

Finally, speaking to BGR, the company said: "While we’re excited to see companies innovating and while we’re not ready to make an announcement specifically related to the Win 7 phone, we generally want to be everywhere our listeners want us to be."

Wow...I knew that microsoft forced terrible terms and restrictions upon Win7mo developers, but I didn't think it would be this bad.
