Microsoft says that WP7 handsets for Verizon & Sprint are coming in the first half of 2011
Well, it appears that Verizon and Sprint will finally see Windows Phone 7 handsets arrive within the first of the year. After announcing that CDMA support for Windows Phone 7 will be included with the much-anticipated update in early March, Microsoft went out on a limb to give us all a time frame on when to expect actual devices.
Specifically, we should see it arrive within the first half of 2011 – so that means between now and the end of June. Granted that they didn’t branch out further with the details regarding devices or a date, it should still nonetheless give some hope for CDMA customers who have expressed interest in checking out the new platform.

I'd like to see the HTC 7 Pro on Verizon. Many of us still love our QWERTY keyboards and the 7 Pro looks like typing heaven.

Im there with you! Im coming from a TouchPro2 and it is an AMAZING phone. Nothing short of spectacular even as an "outdated" device, running WinMo 6.5.
Matter of fact I was able to pull up sports scores quicker than some Droid 2's the other day :D

Be nice to have and take that option. My family, including my parents and my generation cousins have enjoyed Android, but all want to make a switch to WP7... It is a more contained OS with generally better battery life on their phones.
WP7 will gain grounds once released on the CDMA network - more so with Verizon in my opinion. Hopefully they bring their best guns on the nations best network!!
