Actually they just won't be a launch partner.

Think WebOS. sprint was the launch partner, Verizon (and att) got it later

I'm sure Verizon isn't exactly all roses and sugar plums over the Kin fiasco. I could think of two contributing thought processes to this decision... 1) wait and see how WP7 does, 2) go pound sand, Microsoft, thanks for those 2 turds of a phone. I'm sure Verizon is just being conservative and making sure WP7 isn't a dud in a month.

I don't blame them at all.

Who says that VZW rejected it? Maybe they were never even offered it....

RIM chose to launch Blackberry 6.0 with at&t, doesn't mean VZW will never get it, because they will

Google chose to launch Android with T-Mobile, eventually it came to every carrier

Palm chose to launch WebOS as a Sprint exclusive, and then it went to VZW and then to at&t

I don't know who is getting the first WP7 phone, but it may well be that the reason VZW won't get WP7 'at launch' is because the carrier that will get the first device insisted on an exclusive arrangement for a period of time

It looks like a really slick UI.

I'm really interested to see what it brings to the table.

Ok if you say so,

So have you checked out the TuneIn Radio app yet? Awesome app, has tons, and tons of radio stations.

I agree with trojandrew, but would also add a third scenario: VzW are resting on their laurels with Android (as successful as it's "Droid" branding is) instead of offering a WP7 competitor.

I doubt exclusivity deals are an issue since there are so many different manufacturers scheduled to produce launch phones for the OS. Moreover, there's not enough wiggle room for any manufacturer to have a device unique enough to warrant an exclusivity deal with anyone. I mean, they will all have 1GHz CPUs, the same interfaces ... the only differentiating factor is screen size (and whether or not it has a QWERTY).

Who cares who gets it? WP7 is garbage from the get-go. Bloated, no copy and paste, etc. Who in their right mind would even want this piece of garbage?
