HTC Trophy Shows FCC Its Dual Verizon-AT&T Bands

HTC’s Trophy, lined-up to be the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 Smartphone on Verizon, showed up at the FCC in January with model number PC40200. Today the agency has published testing documents for a similar model, number PC40210, which completes the Trophy picture with the expected GSM bands that were missing last time.

The obvious feature calling this phone out as the Trophy is its radio, supporting both AT&T as well as Verizon frequencies. We’ve been expecting the Trophy to be such a dual-mode global phone since last fall, so even without the model number similarities, this one would be hard to miss. What, then, was the CDMA-only Trophy that passed through the FCC in January? For now, your guess is as good as ours, but it’s this new model that we expect to be the Trophy that finally shows up on Verizon.

We’ve heard potential launch dates of both March 24 and April 1 for the Trophy. Now that NoDo is starting to trickle out, the time is ripe for CDMA WP7 handsets to make themselves known. Whether it’s this week or next, look for more news on the Trophy soon.
