HTC Trophy seen still coming for Verizon
The once-thought delayed HTC Trophy for Verizon may still be coming based on a leak reportedly pulled from Verizon's site. Microsoft staff are now being given a new promotion building on the old one. Those who bought a Trophy would receive at least a $100 credit per line, Phone Arena was shown; those who bought it before April 1 would have the entire price reimbursed by Microsoft.
The bundle would also give a leather case and a power charger to any new phone adopter.
Some rumors had suggested the phone wouldn't arrive until June, although it's not clear the date had been moved up. The April cutoff regardless points to a major step closer to launch that month and that there wouldn't be long to wait.
The Trophy on Verizon would be fundamentally the same as the GSM version but would add dual-mode CDMA/GSM support and the NoDo update giving copy-and-paste text support out of the box. A 3.8-inch screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon and a five-megapixel camera will carry forward.
