HTC Trophy Verizon

May 26th is shaping up to be a big day for Android customers on Verizon, but now it's going to be important for Windows Phone 7 fans, as well. Verizon just announced that the HTC Trophy will be available online beginning May 26th for $149.99 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate. If you'd prefer to go the brick and mortar route for your Trophy purchase, Big Red's first Windows Phone 7 handset will be available in Verizon stores on June 2nd. Customers that buy a Trophy before July 15th will be given a free Xbox 360 game of their choosing. The options include Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports, and Lode Runner.

For those of you that need a quick refresher, the HTC Trophy features a 3.8-inch 480x800 touchscreen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video capture, 16GB of built-in storage, global connectivity, and Surround sound with SRS WOW HD. As I said before, the Trophy also earns the honor of being Verizon's first Windows Phone 7 device, coming just over two months after Sprint launched its own WP7 offering, HTC Arrive. It's kind of a bummer that it's taken Big Red this long to push out its own WP7 device, but the good news is that it's finally almost here after months of teases and leaks. Anyone planning on grabbing a Trophy?

Thanks for your participation! :)

Benjamin Padilla
Benjamin Padilla @ Zack. Why would you get the iPhone 4 in November when the next iPhone would be out by then? Anyway, all OS's have strengths and weaknesses. It seems that apps pull the weight of the OS though. I personally like webOS the most but the lack of apps make the OS a dud... for now.

Zach Cline
Zach Cline Victor it's coming. Verizon is releasing a ton of stuff on may 26th. Also the samsung galaxy s2 is coming to verizon sometime this year but will be known as the samsung function from what i've read.
Victor Perez
Victor Perez What's a Windows phone 7?
Michael A. Barut
Michael A. Barut Actually looking forward to the Mango update and the 2nd gen WP7 hardware. I tried WP7 on my HD2, and was impressed but the OS was lacking so went back to Android and i4. WP7 has the best Looking UI in my opinion.
Marti Ruiz
Marti Ruiz I like it. But i love android
Arvydas Grušeckas
Arvydas Grušeckas People, have you used Windows 7? Guess you are stuck on XP... W7 are the best of the best! No product is better till date. And Windows Phone 7 is completely new, fresh. It is just awesome! I had so many complains about Android, because it is just too sucky. And I have none with WP7. Mango will kick your droids ass
Cesar Macareno
Cesar Macareno nahh.. i just bought my droid charge.. this thing is awesome.. much more than what i spected.. ;)..
Zach Cline
Zach Cline Klas you couldn't be more wrong .And android sucks. I'm ditching my droid in November for the iPhone 4.
Pierce G Hohenstein
Pierce G Hohenstein Wp7 suckssss
Brad Allison
Brad Allison Gave WP7 a try. I was really unimpressed. Give me Android or an IPhone any time.
Klas A. Lilja
Klas A. Lilja If you have a android you only love google and hate Microsoft and Apple. If you have a Iphone you hate google and microsoft but love Apple. If you have a Windows phone you neither hate google or apple but you love microsoft.
Keith Myers
Keith Myers no.... can barly stand windows on my computer.... android for me.....
Gabriel Fernandez
Gabriel Fernandez Some of you guys are dumb.. lol. You hear "Windows Phone 7" and you instantly think of the old Windows Mobile 6 experience, and it's nothing the same. How about some of you take the time to actual handle a Windows Phone 7 device and try it out? Or maybe.. get off your Android/iOS high horse and acknowledge other platforms and appreciate what they have to offer? Windows Phone is very promising and will become a contender in the near future.
Klas A. Lilja
Klas A. Lilja My guess is that none of you that are complaining about WP have tried one? I've had several android phones and tried iOS plenty of times and I like them both but android is so unstable and laggy and iOS is good but boring. First time I layed my hands on a WP device i knew I had to buy one, I did and I'm never gonna switch to another Phone OS ever again.
Ivan Woods
Ivan Woods No ...Have the Thunderbolt
Sam Platz
Sam Platz Junk.
Darryl Mouzone
Darryl Mouzone I'm not on Verizon but if I was I wouldn't be interested at all. I had a windows phone and I had it for all of two days before I took it back because I didn't like it.
Arvydas Grušeckas
Arvydas Grušeckas If I would live in America- yes, I would be interested, but I live in Europe and have Omnia 7, before I had Desire and Desire Z. Android sucks!
Ryan Hunter
Ryan Hunter No
Eric Noriega
Eric Noriega Nah. Windows on phones is only of intereest bcause it Windoes. Anybody esle and you wouldn't even notice.
Jordan Brown
Jordan Brown They finally sold a million of these after several months of production. iPhone 4 sold 1.5 million on launch day.
Juan Cuara
Juan Cuara Fuck no! Have an iPhone :D
Billy B-willy Pridemore
Billy B-willy Pridemore I had a windows mobile htc juno, and got rid of it for a nokia slider. There is almost no support for 3rd party apps and modifications, and with people saying w7 is a step back as far as freedom, there is no way id go from my og droid that I can clock to whatever I want and install whatever I feel like, even dev from, to a windows phone that's restrictive. No thanks lol its a mistake.
Jordan Brown
Jordan Brown Windows Phone 7 makes no sense. Windows 7 Phone does.
Reynaldo Capetillo
Reynaldo Capetillo No! Got a thunderbolt!
Jordan Brown
Jordan Brown I had a Windows Phone 7 but returned it because it was impossible to use. And I'm good with electronics.
Michael Molyneux
Michael Molyneux Nope stuff it! I'm selling my iPod 4g and ps3 slim 250gb with 15games including rockband with guitar, mic and drums for £250. When I've sold that I'm getting the new iPad 2
Nathan Parks
Nathan Parks interested? yes. but will i buy one instead of an android phone? no.
Shawn Sato-Veillon
Shawn Sato-Veillon No thanks. WP7 is admittedly efficient, but it is a step backwards in terms of freedom to use your phone however you want. Back to the locked down phone days. I mean, who wants a smart phone that you can't do whatever you want with? It will help revive MS's mobile division to some extent, but as Android gains popularity, people will realize this major weakness and unless they do something about this, it will also be the nail that seals the coffin.
Andrei Jelin
Andrei Jelin Android, iOS! WTF is WP7?!? :)
David Ou
David Ou Lol no

Justin Alan Smith I'm interested. Why not?

Kyle Knight
Kyle Knight Not at all.
Nick Kalman
Nick Kalman That would be interesting to know how many of those who yelling that wp7 is crap actually owned one. The answer probably would be none. I've had all kinds of phone including iPhone and Android and after I tried wp7 I'm still with it. You need to give it a try
Gavin Feist
Gavin Feist Windows phone 7 is by far the worst Platform up to date. Slow non responsive and its said windows on it.
Cyndi Rose
Cyndi Rose Is Sprint going to get the IPhone?

Chris Corliss
Chris Corliss Android > IOS > Old School Flip Phone > WP7
Carlo Serrano
Carlo Serrano you all need to try wp7 before you bash it. the UI is butter smooth. themes on android can give it a wp7 look, but they're sluggish compared to the real thing.
Jarrel Ennis
Jarrel Ennis Nope, not at all. Verizon is wasting time and $ with this phone
Jessica Stinson
Jessica Stinson I have had Iphone, Android, and WP7. I still own my windows phone, when I found the others to be too limiting, or too buggy. I love windows 7. I just hate verizon. lol. So I'm happy where I'm at, but anyone who hasn't tried Windows Phone 7, you should give it a glance. It's worth the look.
Miguel Rodriguez
Miguel Rodriguez Not the least. iPhags can rejoice about iOS , but I love me some green robots
Chad Richter
Chad Richter Possibly. I'm getting bored of android and the 800 phones that come out that are essentially the same as All the others.. it's getting old.

Joshua Streeter ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz...
Gabriel Fernandez
Gabriel Fernandez I'm only going to be truly interested when Nokia starts pushing out WP7 phones. Especially if they look like the concept photos they released. Even more so if Microsoft does buy Nokia's mobile division. I really hope they invest in better displays too. Something with a high PPI count like the new Toshiba displays.
Francisco Willmore
Francisco Willmore Not with iphone laying around im not
