Windows Phone 7: No Verizon Release Date until 2011 – Confirmed

By Alan Ng - Sep 17, 2010

We have some disappointing news for those of you on Verizon now, as the carrier has just confirmed that they won’t be releasing any handsets with Windows Phone 7, until later on into 2011.

According to this report from Engadget, Verizon announced the news when speaking in a BusinessWeek interview and is likely to be met with a wave of criticism for those hoping Windows Phone 7 handsets would be available on both AT&T and Verizon in the US.

For reasons still undisclosed by Verizon though, it isn’t going to happen. Instead you’ll have to make do with AT&T’s now-believing claims that they’ll be the number one provider of Windows Phone 7 devices upon launch.

Are you really prepared to wait until next year for a WP7 handset on Verizon? The CDMA iPhone could be out by then! – Let us know your thoughts on this.
