    We know that CDMA-compatible Windows Phone 7 smartphones are being manufactured, but so far there hasn't been much indication as to just when carriers will start selling those models. It still leaves us with a big release window, but now we have some confirmation straight from Redmond that both Sprint and Verizon will have WP7 phones by June 30. This claim comes from Microsoft Mobile Communications director Aaron Woodman. Clarifying statements made by Steve Ballmer during the Microsoft CES event, Woodman narrowed down when we could expect to see these CDMA WP7 devices, like the HTC 7 Pro. ...

    It looks like the HTC 7 Trophy has just passed the FCC packing a CDMA radio, making it highly likely that this model is the Windows Phone 7-powered HTC Trophy we're expecting to hit Verizon in short order. Although its name is not specifically given, the model number, PC40200, is just one off from PC40100, which we know from the Bluetooth SIG is Europe's version of the 3.8-inch Trophy. Plus, both of these models received WiFi Alliance approval on the same certificate, alongside the HTC 7 Mozart and HTC 7 Surround. We'd already seen from a very official-looking document that Trophy will ...

    There were so many indications of Windows Phone 7 hitting Verizon soon that we can already start the countdown! And here's another confirmation in case you're skeptical as a couple of Verizon Wireless branded applications have surfaced inside Marketplace. First there was a leaked special offer for Microsoft employees indicating early 2011 availability of Verizon Windows Phone 7 devices; then we had the Verizon HTC Trophy handset rumor pointing towards a January release followed by an even more recent one indicating next month as a launch target. Today, three Verizon Wireless applications ...

    The CDMA Windows Phone 7 launch saga continues, as a new, unnamed source has stepped forward to confirm a January 2011 launch window for Sprint and Verizon. According to Neowin, a trusted source claims that we can finally expect Windows Phone 7s on both CDMA carriers next month. Of course, this lines up nicely with a recent rumor stating that the HTC Trophy will be heading to Verizon at the start of the new year, as well as the leaked pamphlet to Microsoft employees. Sprint's plans have been kept relatively quiet, although they did tease us with an unfinished product back in October. ...

    We'll file this under category R for the moment - at least till we get official wording - but Paul Thurott claims he's been told that Verizon will receive the HTC Trophy as soon as January 2011. This comes right in context with what we've previously heard regarding the special offer for Microsoft employees where people could pre-order the device by December 31 with January 2011 shipping, not to mention someone's hickup inside Microsoft that announced Verizon's Windows Phone 7 availability by Christmas. We know that Windows Phone 7 currently does not support CMDA and we also know that ...

    So we were just taking a little stroll through the US Patent and Trademark Office archives when we happened upon a pair of applications from Taiwanese manufacturer HTC that caught our eye: the company is looking to trademark the names "HTC 7 Melody" and "HTC Freestyle." The applications were filed on August 19th and October 21st, respectively, and neither have been granted marks yet: Freestyle has yet to be assigned to an examiner, while 7 Melody apparently required a re-filing to clarify the use of the number seven. The revised application explains that "7 appearing in the mark means or ...

    Microsoft seems have to erroneously posted a tweet claiming that Windows Phone 7 devices would be available from Verizon during the holiday season, only to replace it with one that seemingly confirms the original "early 2011" release window. The takeaway here is that someone at Microsoft either leaked out information not yet meant for public consumption, or simply made a factual mistake that needed correction: after all, we have been under the impression for some time that there would be no CDMA WP7 handsets released stateside until the first quarter of next year. Responding to a message ...

    After the HTC 7 Mozart microSD card episode -- where one had to practically tear the phone apart to expose the memory card -- another HTC Windows Phone 7 handset falls victim to abuse in the name of science, this time the HTC 7 Trophy. While previous attempts have failed mainly due to a weak heart of the hacker and high blood pressure, this time, another hacker went all the way, peeling off the aluminum foil on the HTC 7 Trophy to expose a SanDisk 8GB Class 4 microSD card pictured above. And we thought that SanDisk 8GB Class 2 microSD Card was the first to receive Windows Phone 7 ...

    We just heard that Verizon was looking forward to stocking Windows Phone 7 devices, and now it looks like the HTC 7 Trophy will be one of those handsets. According to a pamphlet intended for Microsoft employees and published by Engadget, qualified buyers can pre-order the phone by December 31st for delivery in "early 2011" -- which is classified as the launch window. Redmond workers are paying "only" $199.99 for the 3.8-inch WVGA model, reads the document, which suggests that it will cost even more for average consumers (VZW just priced its LG Optimus One, the Vortex, higher than the other ...

    Australian developer Chris Walsh recently found a method to run so-called native code on the platform indicating that jailbreaking Windows Phone 7 could be possible, though it's a first step in a huge process. Same developer seems to have conquered another OS tower as he now tweeted that he's got registry and file system access. The tweet also mentions that this was achieved on Samsung and HTC devices and the developer is committed to getting that on LG handsets too. Are these hacks device dependent? Normally they shouldn't be but, as with the case of USB tethering on the Samsung Focus and ...

    All may not be well in Windows Phone 7 land, as the HTC 7 Trophy is currently the subject of inquiry regarding both its speed and screen quality. Specifically, a side-by-side comparison video (embedded at the bottom of this post) with a Samsung Omnia 7 shows the Sammy device loading a game noticeably faster, while a separate comparative shot between two Trophies seems to depict a significant different in viewing angles (pictured above and below). In a thread translated from the original Dutch on site Tweakers.net, user spenky provides several photos comparing a pre-release Trophy with one ...

    The first ever regions for Windows Phone 7 handsets to be available for the masses were Australia and New Zealand where customers were able to buy the highly anticipated Windows Phone 7 platform operated devices many hours before the rest of the world (except U.S. where the date for that is November 8). Whether the demand in handsets was higher than expected or stocks of devices were lower than they should have been, one thing is for sure: there are reports according to which the region is fighting severe shortage in handset stocks. From the 11 locations of Telstra where Windows Phone 7 is ...

    The HTC 7 Trophy is one of the five Windows Phone 7 handsets HTC has launched yesterday, being available so far on carriers like SFR (France) and Vodafone (Germany, Spain, UK, Australia).

    So we think we may have solved the confusing web of codenames surrounding HTC's Windows Phone 7 launch lineup. Although not all the pieces fit perfectly, we find the following scenario to be most likely. We'll start with the easy ones and move on to less concrete associations. 1. HD7 = Shubert/Schubert This one has been common knowledge for several days now, and many sources have already started to use the two names interchangeably. 2. 7 Mozart = Mozart Sort of a no-brainer at first glance, but it bothers us that HTC would use the same branding and codename; not really the company's style. ...

    While most of today's excitement surrounding HTC focused on the US-bound 7 Surround, HD7, and 7 Pro, Europe and Asia Pacific will get another pair of Windows Phone 7 handsets that we've seen quite a bit of: the HTC 7 Trophy and HTC 7 Mozart. The two models are very similar, both packing 1GHz Snapdragon processors and 576MB RAM / 512MB ROM, 8GB of internal storage, as well as 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a 1300mAh battery, plus Bluetooth 2.1 -- when is HTC going to follow Samsung's lead and start releasing Bluetooth 3.0-compliant hardware? Where the two devices differ most significantly - besides ...
