    Verizon Wireless readys first Windows Phone 7 - HTC Trophy


    Don't worry your on the right site! Although we normally try to keep the news dedicated to Android and the Droid lineup of phones, this bit of news I find rather interesting and wondering if this could be the beginning of something new in the smart phone world. Today Verizon Wireless has announced it will begin offering it's first Windows Phone 7 the HTC Trophy next week.

    Microsoft unveiled the Windows Phone 7 last year and sales have been rather weak since the release. With the phones now landing on the nation's largest network could that change? Who would have thought 10 years ago Microsoft would be a leader in gaming consoles? Let us know your thoughts!

    Full Press Release Below:
    BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – HTC Trophy™ is the first Windows Phone 7 device to come to Verizon Wireless, bringing a new dimension of gaming and entertainment to the nation’s most reliable 3G network.

    Windows Phone is the only phone that lets you play games with Xbox LIVE. Customers can sync directly with Xbox LIVE mobile to access their avatar, profile and gamer score to keep track of their wins. HTC Trophy also allows consumers to play by themselves or challenge friends in turn-based games. In addition to the many mobile gaming features, customers who buy an HTC Trophy before July 15 get a free Xbox 360 console game. Game enthusiasts can choose from Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports and Lode Runner – up to $60 value.

    HTC Trophy features the Music + Video Hub, giving customers quick access to music and movies on their device. Customers can stream or download millions of songs with a Zune Pass subscription and access over 15,000 quality apps and games in Windows Phone Marketplace through the Marketplace Hub.

    Additional features:
    · 1 GHz Snapdragon® processor

    · WVGA 3.8-inch touchscreen

    · Surround sound through SRS WOW HD™

    · 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash

    · 16 GB on-board storage

    · Wi-Fi connectivity: 802.11 b/g/n

    · Global ready - allowing customers to enjoy wireless voice and data service in more than 200 countries, with more than 125 with 3G speeds

    · HTC Hub-customization through downloadable applications that offer even more entertainment and productivity

    The only thing that would ever make me want a WP7 phone at this time is the Zune music player, which I absolutely love. Other than that these phones seem to be sorta lacking. I think I'll just find myself a Zune HD somewhere cheap.

    The 16GB of Onboard storage makes me feel slighted at the fact that my HTC Thunderbolt has 2.0GB free after everything is set up when it was advertised as 8GB. Where is that angry face smiley.... here we are

    One of my co-workers got a Windows phone and let me use it... No thanks, it reminds me of facebook - loaded with tons of stuff I'll never use and contrary to what my co-worker thought, it was really laggy. Still, nice to see Verizon opening up a bit.

    A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.

    To be honest, I wondered the same thing. But lets put it this way. It's his ball, he can do what he wants with it.
