Report: Verizon's first Windows Phone 7 will be the HTC Trophy

By Hayley Tsukayama

windows_phone_7_start.jpg After Sprint's announcement that it will be releasing its first Windows Phone 7, the HTC Arrive, there are rumors that Verizon is planning a WP7, as well.

According to WinRumors, Verizon is planning to announce the launch of the HTC Trophy as early as Feb. 28, to go on sale in March. The Trophy is rumored to be shipping with Windows' NoDo update, which has a copy-paste function.

It's been a long wait for Sprint and Verizon when it comes to the platform. Microsoft announced in September that it would hold off on making the Windows Phone 7 CDMA-capable until 2011. Microsoft's Greg Sullivan told CNET in November that the delay was due to the company's desire to concentrate on "doing fewer things, really, really well."

Verizon is the only big carrier near me so this would have mattered a month ago. I would have strongly considered this WP7 but iPhone 4 beat it to the punch. I will be sticking with an iPhone for the foreseeable future.

I am open to WP7 down the road. WP7's app store already beats Android handily and is growing rapidly so I could see it taking on Apple's store in the not-too-distant future. I would just need to release a handset that catches me well enough.

I could consider WP7 down the road. To me their app store in the little time it has been out already puts Android's marketplace to shame. It does not match Apple's deep offering yet. When it does if I see a WP7 that pulls at me I could make the jump. Some people act like everyone with an iPhone is a fanboy. I just think it is the best phone out there now, not the best that will ever exist.
