Windows Phone 7 coming to Verizon and Sprint next month?
While it has been long assumed that the CDMA variant of Windows Phone 7 would be launched in the first quarter of 2011 by Verizon and Sprint, a source has confirmed to Neowin.com that we can expect this to take place in January. Thanks to a previous leak, we can take a educated guess that Verizon will lead off with the HTC Trophy as its initial Windows Phone 7 handset. As we reported, a promotional flyer for Microsoft employees contained the information that the employees had until the end of this month to sign up to receive the HTC Trophy when it is rolled out in January.

The decision by Sprint as to which Windows Phone 7 model to launch first is not a surprise as Microsoft has already announced that the HTC 7 Pro would be available from Sprint when it introduced the model in October. As we reported, speculation that Sprint would debut Windows Phone 7 with the HTC 7 Pro has already made the rounds.

For Verizon and Sprint customers who might have felt left out, it looks like you won't have much longer to wait for your Windows Phone 7 handset, and each carrier appears to be offering a model that can deliver the goods. The HTC Trophy features a 3.8 inch display with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, a 1GHz processor and a 5MP camera that shoots HD video in 720p. The HTC 7 Pro features a side sliding QWERTY keyboard, a 3.6 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, and like the HTC Trophy, has a 1GHz processor under the hood and a 5MP camera that shoots HD video in 720p.

That is not the right picture for the HTC Trophy and the link says Windows Mobile 6.5 I think it needs a little updating phonearena but anyways the WP7 Trophy looks to be my next phone in a few months.

Dude, I don't know what you are looking at, but I cannot find anything that says Windows Mobile 6.5 or even something that doesn't look like the HTC Trophy. If you are talking about the pic at the top of this article, then it is the wrong pic of the HTC Trophy because it is the HTC 7 Pro.

Sky, BMW's saying that phone arena put a link to the wrong "Trophy"

that HTC Snap looking phone (which runs WinMo 6.5) was codenamed Trophy hence the confusion.

But BMW Sky is rite that pic in article isn't a Trophy or Mozart, its the 7 Pro.

I've checked out some of the WP7 for AT&T and don't really care for it. Not that it isn't good, but it just isn't for me. So I don't think that I would be getting the HTC 7 Pro for Sprint even though I do like the way that the screen tilts.
