The HTC 7 Trophy was launched in Europe in October, and the European version of this handset was introduced in our HTC Trophy review. That time I assumed that the phone will hit the U.S. market with a price tag at $200, but yesterday it became clear the HTC Trophy will be released via Verizon Wireless for $149.99 with a two-year contract.
Big Red provides the largest network coverage nationwide, so the Trophy will be available for a big number of users, which is very good. The smartphone will be available for pre-orders on May 26, and from June 2 you’ll be able to buy it.
The HTC Trophy is the first WP7-based device of Verizon, and this fact makes the device even more interesting. Anyway, the HTC Trophy’s 3.8-inch touchscreen, 1GHz processor, 5MP camera, 16GB internal memory, 576MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM will surely help the smartphone find its place among Verizon’s best devices.
The smartphone is available in more than 200 countries worldwide, and more than 125 of them provide 3G network. So we can say this handset has won users’ hearts a long time ago.
