Verizon WP7 Coming May 5th

If the reports are true, and with the past release dates coming and going with no phone, the HTC 7 Trophy is FINALLY coming to Verizon May 5th. As I am in the market for a new phone, and this thing hitting the streets, I think I may end up with a Windows Phone 7. I was so close to grabbing a Thunderbolt this past weekend, but passed on it.

Verizon’s Windows Phone will ship with Microsoft’s “NoDo” copy and paste update. “NoDo” is Microsoft’s first platform update, which also includes improved application start-up and resume times. Verizon recently posted support articles referencing Microsoft’s own fixes for known Windows Phone 7 issues. Verizons’s HTC 7 Trophy Windows Phone device was spotted in the wild in late February. Further photos leaked in March following confirmation that the device includes all of Verizon’s branding, even a “My Verizon Mobile” application.
