Enthusiast blog wpcentral reported on Wednesday some new details surrounding what should eventually become Verizon Wireless’ first Windows Phone 7 device. Photographs of the phone obtained by the site reveal a few interesting tidbits, namely the apparent presence of both CDMA and GSM radios. We also get our first glimpse of Verizon’s My Verizon Mobile app for Windows Phone 7, which looks to shy away from Microsoft’s Metro UI in favor of a more typical layout. Finally, an image of highlighted text reaffirms the obvious — the Trophy is equipped with Microsoft’s first major software update for Windows Phone 7, which is a requirement for CDMA phones to function. Initial rumors pointed to a Trophy release in late March on the Verizon Wireless network, but wpcentral now reports that the phone might not launch until June.
