Verizon HTC Trophy is close, but it won't be the 24th

Not too shocking here that hopeful Verizon customers won't be getting the HTC Trophy this week. The rumored date was the 24th or rather, that was the goal. So that's the bad news.

The good news is it is very close to release. We can share this bit of info regarding big red's first Windows Phone:

  • Testing is going well
  • The device is being evaluated for standards certification right now
  • Still waiting to announce a launch date but "it will be very soon"

We can say with confidence that the above information is from Verizon internal and very recent. So while folk will have to wait just a little while longer, Verizon looks to be dotting the i's and crossing the t's for launch, meaning we're in the final lap.

Thanks, Eric M., for the tip!
