Verizon HTC Trophy Appears in The Flesh at Best Buy

In a sign that a launch could finally be on the horizon, Verizon’s HTC Trophy with Windows Phone 7 has appeared at Best Buy once again only this time it’s not on the retailer’s website, it’s in the flesh.

As you can see in the photo, a HTC Trophy dummy handset has appeared at Best Buy which means that the wheels are in motion for a launch which could come as early as May 12th or as far away as May 19th. Either way, it looks like Microsoft and Verizon are finally going to be getting the device out to customers after a long, long wait.

The HTC Trophy is going to be Big Red’s first Windows Phone 7 handset and it will be arriving with a 3.8-inch TFT display, 16GB of on board storage, a 5MP rear facing camera, and a 1GHz single-core processor. It’s not a beast by any stretch of the imagination but it’s definitely a very capable device.

Verizon will be the last of the four major mobile carrier’s in the United States to get a Windows Phone 7 launch with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint jumping on board long ago.

Anyone going to be picking one of these up when it finally hits shelves?

    Brian would you expect anything less? BB is notorious for just being all around behind. At least they employ high schoolers who dont care about embargos or NDAs. Cant wait for more cell phone pictures

    Been waiting since I heard that MS was going to be making this thing years ago, unfortunately I’m with Verizon or I would have had one a long time ago.  The HTC Trophy is listed in the new VW product guide that I picked up in store the other day, but of course the salesman had no idea when it would be in.
