The model is expected to be the HTC 7 Trophy and should be introduced by the carrier on February 28th. The device is expected to be priced at $199.99 with a signed 2 year contract and will ship with Microsoft's first update, "NoDo", for the OS which includes copy and paste functionality. The update is also expected to improve application start up and resume times.
As we reported yesterday, fellow CDMA carrier Sprint will launch its first Windows Phone 7 handset, the HTC Arrive, on March 20th. Sprint's device will also have a contract price of $199.99 although that figure is after a $100 mail-in rebate. There is no mention of a rebate with the rumors relating to Verizon's launch of its first Windows Phone 7 model.
