Windows Phone 7 coming to Verizon Wireless for the holidays

Oops. It looks like someone running Microsoft’s Windows Phone Twitter account got a little excited and spilled the beans on a 2010 Windows Phone 7 launch at Verizon Wireless. In response to a tweet from Twitter user @joeyjoyjoy asking Microsoft to “get on some CDMA networks already,” an official Microsoft-run Twitter account replied. The response, which came as a surprise considering no official announcement has been made, stated that “WP7 devices will be rolling into Verizon stores this holiday season.” Microsoft’s Windows Phone Twitter account went on to say more devices would launch on Verizon Wireless in early 2011. The Microsoft tweet has since been pulled, but no correction was issued in its place. As a result, we can only presume Verizon will indeed be getting its Big Red mitts on at least one Windows Phone 7 device before the year is through.
