HTC Trophy with WP7 due at Verizon in early 2011
It now appears the first, CDMA-enabled Windows Phone 7 device to arrive at Verizon will be the HTC Trophy, sometime in early 2011, Engadget reported on Monday. The provider has already said it's looking forward to the opportunity to sell the handsets as soon as they become available. The leaked pamphlet for the handset (below) is meant for Microsoft employees, and reveals that the Trophy will have quad-band support for connecting to GSM networks when in other countries.
Eligible Microsoft employees will be able to buy the Trophy for $200 when they renew their contracts for two years, along with a leather case and a vehicle charger for free. The offer is valid until December 31.
The pamphlet also confirms that the Trophy will sport the familiar 3.8-inch, 480x800 touchscreen, five-megapixel camera, 16GB of onboard storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1.
