Verizon Wireless today announced the HTC Trophy, its first Windows Phone 7 device. The Trophy will ship with the "NoDo" WP7 update installed, which is the latest version of the operating system available. It includes cut-and-paste and better Marketplace search. Features of the Trophy include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor; 3.8-inch WVGA touch display; 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, and 720p HD video capture; 16GB of on-board storage; plus Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The Trophy is a world phone, which means it will work both on Verizon's network in the U.S. and on GSM/EDGE/HSPA networks overseas. The Trophy will be available online starting May 26 and in stores June 2 for $149.99 with a new voice/data contract. Customers who purchase the Trophy before July 15 will also receive a free XBox 360 video game.
The Federal Communications Commission recently approved an unannounced version of the HTC Trophy that has both CDMA and GSM radios on board. The FCC confirms that this version of the Trophy has CDMA 850/1900, GSM 850/1900, and WCDMA 850/1900. Typically phones that support both GSM and CDMA networks are sold as World Phones by Sprint or Verizon Wireless. The Trophy is a Windows Phone 7 smartphone.
