Many would know the basic facts about the Windows Phone 7 mobile platform by now, and considering the vast number of leaks and rumors that have circulated in the past couple of months, the specs and other important details about the new WP7 handsets are no longer that surprising.

But knowing where all these new phones are –that is the big question of the week. These new WP7 handsets are due to be released by October 22, and here’s a quick rundown of the various networks and all the phones they offer.

Mobile virtual network operator 3 UK has actually managed to snag a couple of handsets. The Dell Venue Pro, which has been renamed from Dell Lightning, is confirmed to be heading to the network. The QWERTY keyboard toting handset is going to be an interesting choice for buyers.

Samsung’s Omnia 7 is also heading to 3 UK which means that this super AMOLED touch screen smart phone will serve as the main media centric WP7 handset under 3 UK.

Vodafone UK has got two major handsets under their flag. LG’s Optimus 7 and HTC 7 Trophy will both be heading towards the UK network operator. The Trophy seems like an interesting choice over the Optimus 7 –simply because it is an HTC device. The addition of HD video and SRS surround also makes it a compelling media playback device.

O2 will be offering the HTC HD7. While initial reports indicate that there might be some sort of exclusivity going on, no specific details have been confirmed. O2 has priced the handset at 379 GPB on a pay as you go scheme; the device is also being offered on a wide range of 2 year tariffs.

Lastly, Orange Mobile UK will be offering the HTC Mozart and the Samsung Omnia 7 (aside from 3 and Orange, the Omnia will be out on T-Mobile as well). The Mozart’s 8 mega pixel snapper and Xenon flash technology is certainly getting plenty of attention for those who love their camera phones.
