Qtek, who already released the HTC Pocket PC Phone Edition, is going to release the first Microsoft Smartphone independently - without a GSM carrier in the background.

The Qtek 7070 is based on the HTC Tanager (see more here) and will be sold in Sweden through Brightpoint.

A price or release date wasn't given so far.

Cheers ~ Arne

This shows that Scandinavians know more about mobile phone market. A device only sold by network operators reaches just a too small percentage of the potential market. Hopefully MS will understand that some time...

@Johann: I don't agree with you :!: A device which is sold without operators is

a. to expensive without a subscription

b. no marketing

c. only carriers reaches 100 % of the market.

So going without a carrier might be good for a geek but Joe User will not recognize it. Because this, Microsoft's approach is the right one - I think...
