We have some good news for those of you patiently waiting for the arrival of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 devices on Verizon Wireless, as we have a statement from the carrier themselves regarding the situation.
As reported from Engadget, Verizon was quizzed on Twitter by a user asking the direct question on when the carrier would finally put Microsoft’s new devices on sale.
Verizon responded to the user with the following statement: ”As soon as Microsoft has ’em ready, we’re excited to offer Windows 7 mobile devices”
It is rather interesting that the carrier preferred to call Windows Phone 7 devices ‘Windows 7 mobile devices’, but the obvious message in their statement above, is that they are waiting on Microsoft to get things moving.
Don’t forget that devices are already available to buy on other carriers in the US, so we still may not see a release on Verizon until well into 2011. Let us know your thoughts on this.
