A spokesperson of AT&T mentioned that it will be the “premier carrier for Windows Phone 7”. We already had the sneaking suspicion that will be the case, but it is nice to have official confirmation. Given how WP7's strategy is to appear on numerous carriers in different form factors, and Verizon is up to the eyeballs in well-spec'd Android handsets, AT&T seems a logical choice for WP7 not to feel like a stepchild.
