Nokia Lumia 710 rear

So far HTC has been the only manufacturer to release a Windows Phone handset on Verizon, but according to a Nokia executive, that'll be changing soon. In an interview with Neowin, Richard Kerris, Nokia's VP of Worldwide Developer Relations, said that "it won't be long" before a Nokia-made Windows Phone hits Verizon's shelves. Kerris didn't provide any details on which handset that may be or when the device(s) might be launching. During the same interview, Kerris also reaffirmed that Nokia's PureView camera technology will be coming to its Lumia line of Windows Phones, saying that a PureView-equipped Lumia will be happening "very soon."

The rumor mill has claimed in the past that a Nokia device was nearly released on Verizon, but the device was reportedly cut by Big Red due to a lack of LTE support, which is a feature that the carrier has described as "critical." While we're still in the dark as to what this Verizon-bound device that Kerris is referring to may be, the fact that more Windows Phone handsets are headed Big Red's way is exciting for fans of the platform. Verizon has previously said that it plans to support Windows Phone 8, with devices running the new OS expected by the end of this year. How many of you Verizon folk would be interested in checking out a Nokia Windows Phone on your carrier?

Eric Magana Wm7 is awesome they only lack apps in the market? You say ios is so much better? Ios is plain so is wm7 with more customization in different ways? Wm7 will be a competitor in coming time
Leo Baxter
Leo Baxter Yes. I want to see more high-end lumia-type devices on more than just AT&T or T-Mobile. Regional carriers need to jump on the WP bandwagon, especially since they get a slew of Android devices and most have the iPhone now. I am currently on the 4s, but had the HTC Trophy on VZW. Windows Phone's speed and interface were far more enjoyable, and I wasn't lacking the apps I use on a daily basis with ios or android.
Zach Cline
Zach Cline Yes I would because not everyone wants android or an iPhone. Less options are never good .
Jesse Ling
Jesse Ling Windows phones just aren't that popular,and for the record I'm not very big on htc either
Travis Rector
Travis Rector No, I couldn't care otherwise. I just don't like how Windows Phone 7 is designed. I like Android. I will probably enjoy Android a whole lot more if I had a better phone. HTC Sense gets annoying.
Chris Northcutt
Chris Northcutt dont care.... got the Galaxy S3!
David Kimberlin
David Kimberlin no.... I not at all.... I dislike everything about them... and yes I used one for less than a week....
Bryan Prime
Bryan Prime Wow K.j. cant write at all... ya no wat i means... anyways, yes more windows phones! Lumia 900 is fantastic and the o.s. is so polished. The problem with it is most people have either become Isheep or like Android and all its bugs! I have a bionic and have had a Lumia.... Lumia was WAY MORE RELIABLE AND BETTER BATTERY! just needed apps
Hubert John Abiera

Keith Michael
Keith Michael No i want to see a new HTC that takes a sd card and one where you can remove the battery.
Matt Cain
Matt Cain Sure. They have a long way to go to seriously compete with iOS and Android, but there's potential there. Potential that can't be reached if the phones aren't in the stores.
Ian Baylon
Ian Baylon Windows is just blackberry and ios put together into some weird square launcher crap
John Xavier Anthony Ursabia
John Xavier Anthony Ursabia Naahh... Android is more than fine... :)
