    Up until now, the updates we've been seeing for Windows Phone 7 (or not seeing, for those still awaiting NoDo) have been from Microsoft and have eventually made their way to smartphones from all WP7 manufacturers. HTC may be about to step away from the pack, as there are reports right now of an update that's specific to only HTC models, currently going out to phones. There isn't any information available yet as to just what the update contains, but multiple users have reported receiving notification that it's available. Don't get too alarmed that we're looking at the start of Windows Phone ...

    Wireless operators tend to be pretty secure with their web assets, so when mentions of particular phones begin appearing on a given site, it's usually a pretty good sign that device launches are only days or even hours away. Well Verizon was particularly generous this weekend, exposing no less than three upcoming handsets -- the HTC Trophy, Samsung Gem, and HTC Merge -- on various parts of its domain. Although all of these devices are considered a lock for the nation's largest carrier, none have yet been officially confirmed by Big Red. First up is the Windows Phone 7-powered Trophy, a ...

    Looks like Verizon's future short term roadmap has been leaked and it contains orientative dates, subject to change, of the upcoming devices the carrier has in store for April and May. According to the table attached, April 7 is the date to watch for Samsung's 4G LTE device, called the Droid Charge, with its 4.3-inch display and4G LTE compatibility. Same day the Casio Commando (image) should hit too, a rugged Android device a la Motorola Defy. A week after, on April 14, it's time for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play which we knew to expect on the carrier. April 15 looks to be the date for the ...

    While Microsoft has yet to open Windows Phone 7's compass API to app developers, handset manufacturers have access to more open programming tools. This allows HTC to release the first WP7 magnetic compass app with the HTC Arrive. The app was simultaneously introduced to the marketplace and it was quickly discovered to be compatible with other HTC WP7 devices. The app prompts you to wave your phone in a figure-eight to calibrate the sensor, then overlays a compass on a map of your current location. The map allows you to select a destination for walking directions, and rotates according to ...

    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 ...

    Microsoft has finally started to roll-out its first major Windows Phone 7 update a couple of hours ago but it might take over a week (or two) for the refresh to reach you if you have a carrier branded device. Chris Walsh, member of the ChevronWP7 team has posted a workaround on its blog letting carrier-branded HTC users emulate a non-branded Windows Phone 7 in order to apply the update immediately. The procedure "un-brands" the HTC device and tricks the system into believing it is carrier independent and good to go for the update. Please note that the hack is for HTC devices only and is an ...

    Sprint already launched the HTC Arrive (aka HTC 7 Pro) as the world's first CDMA Windows Phone 7 so, Verizon's HTC Trophy, whenever it might be launched, can only be second, but it should be any time now! There were rumors that Big Red will announce the HTC Trophy two days from now, that is on March 24, and we really hope the date stands still. Nevertheless, last November's special offer for Microsoft employees on the Trophy is extended at least according to Verizon's website. Microsoft employees will receive from Verizon a $100 bill credit per line when renewing their existing agreement ...

    Coinciding with earlier rumors about the HTC Trophy's rumored release date, we now have another report of a possible March 24 release. The info also corroborates a rumored March 17 release for the HTC Thunderbolt. This also puts the expected release just around the corner from the Sprint HTC Arrive, another CDMA WP7 device. The HTC Trophy is a CDMA/GSM global phone, supporting both network types and utilizing a SIM card for operation. It is expected to debut with Windows Phone 7's NoDo build. The device features a five-megapixel camera, 512MB of RAM, and 16GB of storage, which places it ...

    Two new unbranded, leaked ROMs were posted today at XDA, bringing the number of HTC devices capable of running WP7's official NoDo update to three. The HTC Trophy and HD7 join the HTC 7 Mozart in running Microsoft's latest version of WP7. Both leaked ROMs are unbranded european versions, lacking any carrier customizations. T-Mobile or o2 HD7 owners wanting to apply the update must flash it using the "Gold Card" method to bypass device ID checking. The NoDo version in these ROMs is build 7355-89, the same build as the recent Mozart 7 leak. Available languages are German, English, French, ...

    Verizon might be preparing some support pages on its website to welcome the addition of its first Windows Phone 7, the HTC Trophy, but according to an alleged Verizon rep, the phone will not be out until June. Here's what we think: if Verizon does not have the Trophy up on shelves by the end of March - beginning of April, there's really no use in getting it at all. Releasing a smartphone eight months after the platform launch -- and nearly four months after the CDMA support update, that is the upcoming NoDo -- is way too late for the users, carrier and Microsoft. Hopefully it's the "R" ...

    After stealing the spotlight earlier this week in several pictures of the phone in use, the HTC Trophy on Verizon may be one step closer to its release. Though Verizon still hasn't announced a date when the phone will be available for sale, the carrier has updated its website to include support pages dealing with Windows Phone 7 devices, of which the Trophy would be its first. To be fair, this is a very small amount of WP7-specific content we're talking about, but it shows that Big Red is nearing the day when it officially starts carrying Windows Phone 7 devices. We've seen Verizon ...

    Not convinced by the image of the HTC Trophy on Verizon that popped up yesterday? As if it was answering our demands to get a closer look at it, the Trophy has made another appearance, giving us an even better opportunity to check out the phone's hardware. Windows Phone Central brings us this series of pictures, courtesy of an unnamed tipster. Although not visible in some of the renders that we came across earlier, now you can clearly see the Verizon-red hiding underneath the phone's grills. This is also our first look at a Verizon WP7 app installed on one of its phones. As we mentioned ...

    Mobile analytics provider mtiks has made some Windows Phone 7 related numbers public on its blog regarding app statistics by device, country and usage. According to the figures, the US market is the number one market for Windows Phone 7 applications with 57.3% -- which is to be expected as a home country with a vast population and two carriers to start off the platform -- followed by Germany (18.48%) and UK (7.49%). Both app number and app usage-wise, the Samsung Focus is the most popular Windows Phone 7 device followed by the HTC HD7. From a centralized point of view, the top Windows ...

    With Sprint's HTC Arrive announcement last week, Microsoft is opening up the gates for a completely new segment of the market with CDMA support on Windows Phone 7 brought by the No-Do update. Add Verizon to that segment with the HTC Trophy (sans 7 from its name) which will come late March, according to reports. The device was pictured in the wild wearing the Verizon logo at the top and we're pretty sure the operator will have an announcement ready in the upcoming days. The HTC Trophy features the internals you'd expect from a Wave 1 Windows Phone 7 smartphone: 1GHz Snapdragon processor, ...

    A new report has Verizon releasing its first Windows Phone 7, the HTC 7 Trophy (as the HTC Trophy, minus the 7), in late March, around the same time as Sprint's HTC Arrive (a.k.a. the 7 Pro). According to WinRumors, Verizon could announce the handset as soon as Monday. Arrive is expected to be released on March 20th, running WP7 NoDo, the platform's first major update. Microsoft had stated prior to the first device rollout that WP7 would be GSM-only for the first several months, with the initial CDMA handsets not coming until the first half of this year. Sprint announced the Arrive ...
