Yesterday, we told you about comments made by a Verizon Wireless spokesperson that indicated the company would not be carrying a Windows Phone 7 device until 2011. In context, it seemed like a decision the company had explicitly made, however that does not appear to be the case. Speaking with CNET, Microsoft senior product manager, Greg Sullivan, said:

“For the worldwide market, the vast majority of phones are GSM phones, so we focused on GSM first and then plan to deliver an update that will have great CDMA support in the first half of 2011. That’s device availability in the first half and we’re very confident of that. That’s probably a conservative estimate.”

So, it appears as though no one will be carrying a Windows Phone 7 CDMA device. Any Sprint users, or other CDMA subscriber, disappointed by this news?
