HTC Trophy dummy put on display at a Best Buy store, hints at inevitable release
The HTC Trophy is one of the worst kept Verizon secrets - we all know it's nearing release, but now we have yet another indication this is the case - a Verizon-branded dummy of the handset has appeared in a Best Buy store.

While it would be a bit far-stretched to say this is a definite proof that the handset is to be launched soon, it shows something is in motion, which, if we take a look at the bigger picture, only confirms our suspicions that there is a high probability the HTC Trophy is to be launched on May 12 by Verizon.

The HTC Trophy is to be the first WP-powered Verizon handset. It will offer a 3.8-inch TFT screen with WVGA resolution, 1GHz processor, 5MP camera with HD recording capabilities and 16GB built-in memory among other goodies.

You are also invited to check our Upcoming Verizon Phones page to be sure you are well informed what's coming from Big Red!

Hundreds of thanks to Thump3rDX17 for the tip.

I wish we knew the EXIF data on that photo to determine if it was geotagged to see what Best Buy that dummy was located in.

I also like the 16gb over the europeans 8gb. matter of fact i like it twice as much. i was worried about space and the fact they go out of their way to limit you from changing the cards.

As I've said in other places...evidence is mounting, but I'll believe it when I have one in my hand playing some games on Xbox Live...

Radio Shack doesn't sell Verizon Wireless phones. So its hard to believe your post.
