Verizon's "excited", waiting on Microsoft for Windows Phone 7
A few months ago it seemed Verizon Wireless was giving the cold shoulder to Microsoft and their new OS, taking a "wait and see" approach. However, things may have changed recently, possibly due to positive word-of-mouth that WP7 may have potential after all.
In a recent Tweet, the company suggested that they're just waiting on Microsoft to deliver the OS and that they're "excited" to offer the new platform to their customers. The waiting on Microsoft bit goes back to the unfinished work on porting the new OS to CDMA. We know Sprint is a big partner with Microsoft and that they're getting close to launching the much anticipated 7 Pro.
Will we see some WP7 action from Verizon sooner than later? It looks like we will.
Thanks, Joe C, for the catch!
