HTC Trophy may soon bring Windows Phone 7 to Verizon Wireless

It wasn’t included among the stockpile of devices Verizon Wireless announced Thursday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but Verizon may have another exciting new device in store. As we now know, Microsoft will soon release a software update for its Windows Phone 7 platform that will bring CDMA compatibility to the platform. The update is due to become available later this month and following its arrival, HTC’s Trophy may be the first Windows Phone 7-packing device headed to Big Red. Known as the HTC 7 Trophy outside the U.S., a new version of the Trophy with CDMA radios passed through the FCC recently. Based on previous rumors, the sleek smartphone is headed for Verizon Wireless as opposed to Sprint. We still have a few days of CES left for Verizon to make make this puppy official but even if the carrier opts to stay focused on 4G devices, we could certainly still see the Trophy launch very soon. Mobile World Congress, perhaps?
