Verizon Wireless Windows Phone 7 status (official release May 26th)

Edit: The thread here was renamed due to not being updated on 2/28 but, lots of rumors, go to the last page to see the most current update....Don't forget thanks where needed !

Well, this is interesting, after Sprint annoucing the HTC Pro7, now the word is Verizon will show the HTC Trophy (they entry level WP7 phone) on Monday the 28th for a March release.

Verizonís CDMA rival Sprint announced their first Windows Phone 7 device on Thursday, the HTC Arrive will launch on March 20 priced at $200. WinRumors understands Verizonís offering will arrive in late March around the same time as Sprint.
I do hope they annouce more than one model because I really am not interested in the Trophy as it's the lowest end WP7 phone. I still have a claim open with Asurion with my cracked display on my TP2 (they have no more TP2s), maybe the'll give me one of these...heh

But, MAYBE a Windows Phone 7 on Verizon.....

Edit: More reports of it...

They have offered me a bunch of differnt phones but, nothing equals the TP2...really, you never know how great a phone is till you have to find a replacement for it....Seriously I am not kidding.

I figured for the $50 (I'm still grandfathered in, as I have not signed a contract in 5 years now), I'll get a replacement phone now and just plan to sell it when I get a WP7 phone I want. They just don't have anything I want or compares to the TP2 (they offered me a TP1, I loled !). Still using it with a cracked display

This could be good news for VZW getting a WP7 model tho. We should know more on Monday...I hope.

I really thought Verizon shot themselves in the foot earlier this week when they came out & said they don't need Windows Phone 7!

i think the trophy is a nice looking phone but i still think vzw is killing themselves with that comment about not needed wp7 i think it's was childish because their still holding grudges from the kin 1 and kin 2 fallout . but it's good to see them eat their words if thas the case with the trophy .. when it makes its apperance on big red ..

The Kin mess...Does anyone here think every other phone the Verizon carried and promoted in some way was a full sucess ? No.

The Kin was designed as a lower cost public networking phone (facebook, twitter, etc) for a younger croud, Verizon killed it with charging a $30 mo data plan. It was not MS's fault or Verizons, it was both of them, it never sold because it was a min of $69.99 (450min $39.99+$30.00 data) a month to run it. The press made more of a big deal of this than MS or Verizon in the press.

Verizon, like Spint or AT&T is a business, if you have a bad day or product, you move on. By not taking WP7 in their line up, they could be leaving money on the table and as a company, it's not something you want to do, it would be just dumb.

Like I said, it's all about the money, Verizon pushed Android because they could not get the iPhone (and at that time it sucked with them)and sold what they could to compete.

We'll see how the tables turn when Verizon gets a few models of WP7 and can push them along with Android and the iPhoney, we'll see the winner then.

The Kin never sold because its supposed targeted audience (tweens lol) are all carrying around Blackberrys & iPhones these days that can do way much more than then Kin could offer lol (hell my 15 y/o future sis in law is rocking a Blackberry Torch right now, even though I tried to get her to get the new Atrix), but Verizon would be stupid to put all its eggs in one basket with the iPhone and not get on board with WP7, matter fact, I'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt on this one, I bet that Steve Jobs paid Verizon to make that "we don't need WP7" comment lol.
