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.
