As we continue to wait for the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt official release date, another HTC device on the carrier, the Trophy, still has no release date. Mystery still surrounds release dates for both handsets, with little snippets of advertizing or specs leaking all the time.
There is some good news surrounding the HTC Trophy, as the device is a global CDMA/quad-band GSM handset according to a report by Daniel Rubino at wpcentral. This will be welcome news for Verizon customers, as this will be the first Windows Phone which can be used worldwide for the carrier.
The handset is said to be very fast and smooth, and the NoDo update has done away with the Marketplace scrolling lag. The OS has also been confirmed to be NoDo version 7.0.7355. Finally don’t take it for granted, but a Verizon rep who claims they are involved with the handset, says it will not be released before June.
This is only speculation but if the Trophy doesn’t come out by the end of March, we have pre-warned you. It does make some sense as an earlier version of the OS is now testing, and is not quite ready for launch.
Verizon customers continue to wait for confirmation of release dates for the new HTC handsets, and must be frustrating once you have set your heart on a particular device.
Are you waiting for the Trophy or Thunderbolt?
