Verizon is the last of the four major carriers to offer a Windows Phone handset, but better late than never, right? The HTC Trophy will be available online starting May 26 and in stores on June 2 for $149.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. Customers who purchase the smartphone before July 15 will also get a free Xbox 360 console game and can choose from Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports, and Lode Runner.
The Trophy is a dual-mode world phone and features a 3.8-inch WVGA touch screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and 16GB of onboard memory.
The smartphone also has a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture and SRS Wow HD technology.
On the left side, you get a volume rocker and Micro-USB port.
On the right spine, there's a dedicated camera key. Microsoft has strict hardware requirements for Windows Phone, which include the camera key and the three start, back, and search buttons on front.
