    Does anybody know if windows phone 7 is going to let you switch the UI language in the same way you can with an Iphone but you couln't with WM6.5? I other words if I buy from AT&T, the UI will surely be in English; can I switch it to spanish or some other language?

    From this article, it sounds as if you should be able to change it.

    Welcome to eWM!

    Thanks for the answer and for the welcoming. Im still not sure if you'll be able to switch between languages or if your just stuck with the versión you bought like in WM6.5. I guess we will have to wait a few more days to ask people once they have it in their hands. I take it you don't have one yet.

    I could swear I read on Paul Thurrott's site that language is just a setting in preferences.

    So I just picked up a Mozart, from T-Mobile in Germany. There were only two language options - German and English(UK). So definitely caveat emptor on this one.

    On the Samsung Focus, you can choose from German, English, Spanish, French or Italian.
