Verizon says it is ready to sell Windows Phone 7 devices as soon as Microsoft is ready
Verizon customers dying to get their hands on a  model powered by Windows Phone 7 shouldn't blame the mobile operator, according to a tweet sent out by the nation's largest carrier. The message basically says that as soon as Microsoft provides the phones to Verizon, Big Red will offer them to its customers.

As we reported, no CDMA models of the Windows Phone 7 are expected until the first half of next year except for the HTC 7 Pro which is due to be launched on Sprint, with pre-orders starting December 8th. Despite the pre-order date, the actual model won't see the light of day until early 2011.

Maybe Verizon is too busy right now with the number of Motorola DROID spin offs that the carrier is offering like the Motorola DROID Pro and the Motorola DROID 2 Global. Of course, there are all of those other Android handsets like the HTC Merge. For those uninterested in the green robot, don't forget that the webOS 2.0 flavored Palm Pre 2 is also on Verizon's Q4 road map.

Verizon customers, if Android or webOS is not your cup of tea, and you like what you have seen so far with Windows Phone 7, don't blame your carrier for not having any models to sell you. Verizon says that it is ready to ring up some phones using Microsoft's new OS. All Big Red needs is the phones to sell.
