Since Microsoft has released the Windows Phone 7 handsets in last year, Verizon’s customers were eagerly waiting for a Windows Phone 7 powered handset and Verizon has decided to take a 6-month-old model HTC Trophy (known as HTC 7 Trophy) making it their very first Windows Phone 7 smartphone, and it has finally available to purchase with a price tag of $149.99 on a two-year contract. Both Amazon and Wirefly retail chains have slashed $50 from the original price tag of the HTC Trophy handset, making it available to buy for $99.99. These prices of course come with a new two year contract. As Microsoft is planning to release the new Windows Phone 7 “Mango” update this fall, it would be better to consider to buy it and $99 price tag is a worth noting point to buy it.
Specs wise, it is featuring 3.8- inch LCD display with WVGA resolution of 400 x 800 pixel, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8650 processor, 512MB ROM, 576MB RAM, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, 720p video recording, 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, a-GPS, micro-USB port, a 3.5mm headset jack, 1300mAh battery.
The Trophy fun doesn’t end here. Verizon will give away a free copy of Xbox game which can be chosen from the copies of Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports, or Lode Runner for free for their Xbox 360 device, and Xbox.com now has an official Verizon Trophy theme and Gamer Picture Pack (hit the links) for use with the Xbox 360. Moreover, the HTC Trophy will be coming with the NoDo copy and paste update that Microsoft has finally started sending out to Windows Phone 7 owners since last month.
Head over to Amazon Wireless Stores and Wirefly Stores (hit the links) to the HTC-made Verizon Trophy handset for $99.99 only on a two-year contract with the carrier for Verizon’s new and already existing customers who are looking for an upgrade.
Amazon will be offering free $25 Amazon Gift Card to the buyers of the Windows Phone 7 handset with their purchase.
