The HTC 7 Trophy is the first CDMA device to be launched via Verizon, i.e. in the largest CDMA network statewide. According to the rumors, this phone will be available late in March and this is the time when another Windows Phone 7-powered smartphone, the HTC Arrive via Sprint, will be released too.
The Big red will charge $200 for the Trophy and the phone will be yours with two-year contract. Though the device is classified as a low-end smartphone, but many users didn’t think so and claim it comes with many useful features that don’t yield other mid-range Windows Phone 7-based handsets.
The Verizon HTC 7 Trophy will come with the first major update of Windows Phone 7 preinstalled, codenamed NoDo. It will bring copy and paste functionality to Microsoft’s platform and also improve application start-up and resume times.
The original Trophy is quite good in many aspects, and among them I can mention the 3.8-inch S-LCD capacitive touchscreen, 5MP camera with autofocus and LED flash, 8GB internal memory, 576MB RAM, 512MB ROM, but unfortunately there is no card slot to expand the memory. The Trophy is also equipped with 1GHz processor and runs Windows Phone 7 operating system.
The main lack of the phone is its 1300mAh standard battery which provides only up to 3.5 hours of talk time, but up to 435 hours of stand-by mode in 3G network.
All the features, but this one, are very awesome and at first it comes to 1GHz processor, and if you decide to get a CDMA Trophy I guess the battery is changeable so it’s a good gift to Verizon’s subscribers.
