I was at a Verizon Wireless store. A rep there ask me what kind of phone I want. I told him I want a Windows Phone. He walked me over to the HTC Trophy. I asked him if there's any new Windows Phones coming, but he hold me to check back in a couple of months.
I was about to leave when he pulled something out of his desk. He showed me a dummy unit of what looks like a smaller HTC Titan with the HTC logo prominently written on the front. I was not allow to touch the unit for some reason. The unit is all black and has ~4.3 inch screen. It also have dual-flash, front facing camera, and a kickstand which is located on the bottom section of the phone.
Strangely enough, there's no Verizon logo anywhere on the phone.

I can't even believe that the store had the Trophy on display, lol.
In 24 months verizon will hopefully stock more windows phones for me to select from as well as ones with hardware more on par with other os flagships. But for now I think the trophy will coo my lust for a smart phone and provide most if not all things I want from such a phone.
I guess even though this is just a rumor(no offense) its still nice to see progression for Wp at verizon.

I hope this turns out to be something good! I need a to a get new phone soon, and I really want a Windows Phone. I don't want to be stuck with such an outdated Trophy. Here's hoping for the best!
Also there's going to be a sale for new 2 year contracts starting 3/3 through 3/27 for St. Patrick's Day with Verizon! Hope it's out by then!

It's funny, my outdated plans with VZW saved me from wasting my upgrade. Just got my new Trophy from eBay this evening to replace my broken down one. Still have my last NE2 credit, but the kicker is I have to do the upgrade either in store or over the phone if I don't want to lose my $5 text plan (but I can do this replacement device no problem online).
So hopefully something better is out by next winter...all I really ask for is an improved main camera and FFC. If it has LTE and good battery life, that's a bonus.
Hmmm...interesting. The new one has a much stronger (buzzier) vibrate than my old one. And the volume buttons seem to stick out a hair more and be stiffer. Might just be the difference between brand new and broken in though. And the new one only has NoDo on it.

Sheesh...the NoDo to Mango update just took about 2 hours. Still need radio update and 8107 installed. Will have to do that tomorrow....plus I have to take the phone away from home to activate anyway (Verizon Network Extender interferes with that process).
Cmon VZW, give us some lovin!
