Dual-Core, LTE Windows Phone 7 devices coming soon Windows Phone boss Andy Lees has said today that dual-core, LTE-supporting Windows Phone 7 devices are coming soon, as the company pushes its way back into smartphone relevancy.
Notes Lees:

We're not making specific predictions but I think that our momentum is going to build. Our first [release] was about mindshare, and really getting the credibility, and I think [Mango] is really about starting to build unit volume and market share.

The exec says the phone platform is in a good position against the competition, Apple's iOS and Google's Android.

When asked about when dual-core, LTE devices are coming, Lees says soon. He also explains how current devices hold up:

They're all single core, but I suspect that they will be faster in usage than any dual-core phone that you put against it, and that's the point.

The first LTE phones were big and big (users) of the battery, and I think it's possible to do it in a way that is far more efficient, and that's what we will be doing.

Windows Phone 7 just updated to "Mango" 7.5, which makes the phones a viable alternative to other mature platforms out there.

It was me wondering if they are trying to get into the Australian LTE market quick, as network 2 (telstra) of 3 has just gone LTE across the whole of Australia and currently there are no LTE able phones for sale within Australia.

Telstra are going to have the HTC sensation coming 1st no idea what happens after that.

Also have a Wi-Max network as well but isn't up every where.

All the major mobile networks are going LTE by the end of the year.
