Verizon considering offering more Windows Phone models
At the tail end of today's conference call relating to Verizon's Q1 earnings, Big Red's CFO Fran Shammo hinted that the carrier believes that offering three platforms would be positive in the smartphone business. Currently, Verizon's only Windows Phone model is the HTC Trophy which dates all the way back to May 2011. This would seemingly be a good time for Verizon to jump back on the Windows Phone bandwagon. Despite Nokia's own earning report being tainted by the smell of desperation, CEO Stephen Elop noted that the U.S. market was one in which sales were better than expected for models powered by Microsoft's mobile OS.

Verizon could end up with a Lumia model in its line-up. Currently, Nokia has two CDMA models, the low-end Nokia Lumia 610C and the mid to high-end Nokia Lumia 800C. Both of these models are offered in the Chinese market and it wouldn't be much of a stretch to have one or both models made available for Big Red's 4G LTE pipeline.
