All manufacturers hit.

Windows Phone 7 is already starting to sell across the pond, but Euro-fans of Microsoft's new mobile boondogle may still be unable to find a handset. Electronista reports that Orange UK and other carriers have been told to expect only "small quantities" of phones. Every brand, including HTC and Samsung, is apparently running into supply issues.

An internal Orange email reveals that the problem may be caused by a "manufacturer issue on a world-wide scale". Microsoft UK mobile lead Alex Reeve has confirmed some "challenges with retail stock".

Odds are, this production stuttering is due the newness of WP7. By the time it launches in the US most of these supply constraints will be fixed. Probably. If not, I don't foresee a very merry Christmas for Microsoft's mobile division.
