AT&T said:

"AT&T plans to carry a new line of Windows Phone 8 smartphones launching later this year. The unmatched leader in Windows Phone – offering the very first 4G LTE Windows Phone smartphones in the U.S. – AT&T is home to the most robust Windows Phone portfolio of any carrier."

T-Mobile responded:

"T-Mobile is very bullish on Windows 8 and will be a partner at launch".

Verizon Wireless also confirmed carriage, saying: "

We have said publicly that we will support the Windows Phone 8 platform."

Sprint was however less committed, saying:
