Took a while, but now Verizon is also offering a Windows 7 Phone.
Verizon announced today that the HTC Trophy will be the first Windows Phone 7 device on their network. The HTC Trophy will be available online on May 26th, and in Verizon Wireless Communication Stores on June 2nd for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. If you buy the phone before July 15th you get a free Xbox 360 game. You can choose from Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports and Lode Runner – up to $60 value.
The HTC Trophy is aimed at Xbox Live users, but of course supports all other Windows Phone 7 features.

The HTC Trophy is part of the first generation of Windows Phone 7 devices that launched at the end of last year. Gartner issued a report today that put the Windows Phone 7 sales at 1.6m for the first quarter of 2011. This still puts them far behind all other major smartphones.
