Verizon HTC Trophy With Windows Phone 7 Coming Soon?

| November 15, 2010 | Reply

We have heard for a while now that Verizon Wireless would try to get some form of Windows 7 Phone in their hands and just yesterday they were quoted as saying that they indeed will be offering Windows 7 Phone handsets as soon as they are available.  Well now it seems as though VZW will have an HTC Trophy of their own in “Early 2011″ with a 5 megapixel camera, 16 GB of storage and a 3.8″ WVGA display.  The device will sell for $199.99 with a new 2 year agreement and Microsoft employees will get their first crack at this device it seems as soon as it becomes available, but check out the brochure below that has been circulating through the VZW systems and let us know what you think.

It’s unclear whether Verizon will ever get HTC’s 7 Pro, but it’s a lock that Big Red will eventually have some manner of Windows Phone 7 gear in its lineup — and now we’ve got one in the flesh. Looks like HTC will be remixing the Trophy for use on CDMA networks, featuring a 3.8-inch WVGA display, 5 megapixel cam, 16GB of storage, and 802.11n, and Verizon is circulating a brochure for Microsoft employees saying they’ll be able to buy the Trophy in “early 2011″ for $199.99 at launch when they renew their contracts now (they’ll also get a leather case and a car charger for free, but hey, they’re Microsofties). Oh, and that’s not the best part: the Trophy is also identified as being a “quad band global phone,” meaning you’ll be able to roam on GSM networks when you leave the US behind — a feature Verizon seems to be pushing pretty hard across its smartphone lineup now. Follow the break for a bigger version of the pamphlet.
