trophy_fntangWith both AT&T and T-Mobile offering Windows Phone 7 handsets since late 2010, and Sprint following suit earlier this year, Verizon Wireless has been the only carrier without a single Microsoft-powered smartphone in their lineup since the OS launched. 

But that changed in late May when Verizon added the HTC Trophy, the carrier’s first Windows Phone.

The Trophy doesn’t do much to separate itself from other Windows Phones currently available in the U.S., but it does bring a third smartphone OS option to Verizon customers. So if you’re with Verizon Wireless, and are looking to upgrade to a new smartphone – or to a smartphone for the first time -  should you consider the HTC Trophy over Verizon’s Android and iPhone offerings? 

Probably not.

HTC Trophy Best PriceVerizon Wireless is selling the new HTC Trophy Windows Phone 7 smartphone for $199 with a two-year contract; a $50 mail-in rebate brings the final price (once you get your rebate) to $149.

But Amazon.com, Wirefly and LetsTalk.com each have the newest CDMA Windows Phone for $99, no rebate required.  All three also offer free shipping.  The $99 price tag is good for both new Verizon accounts with a two-year contract and those eligible for upgrades.

Verizon Wireless HTC Trophy Windows PhoneWe were expecting a March release… then April, but May works, too. This morning Verizon Wireless announced that their first Windows Phone 7 handset, the HTC Trophy, will launch – at last – next Thursday, May 26th.

Other than the date of sale, there were no real surprises: 3.8-inch touchscreen, 16GB of onboard storage, no microSDHC memory card slot, 1GHz Shapdragon CPU, 5MP camera with 720p video recording.

Verizon will begin selling the Trophy on May 26, 2011, online for $149 after a $50 rebate and a two-year contract; the Windows Phone will show up in Verizon retail stores a week later.

Windows Phone 'Mango' or Windows Phone 7.5Microsoft announced some business features of the upcoming “Mango” update to Windows Phone, widely expected to be called Windows Phone 7.5.  There’s nothing terribly exciting here, but the new features will be welcome additions to Microsoft’s smartphone OS.

Email Conversations: Essentially a new threaded view, this will allow you to view email back-and-forths in a grouped thread rather than scattered throughout your inbox according to time sent/received. 

Pinnable Email Folders: If you’re working on a project and want to keep email messages regarding these tasks in one easy-to-find location, you can place email folders on the on the Home Screen for quick access.

Server Search: If you search for an email on the phone, the search will go beyond locally stored messages and include those stored on the server.

Office 365: Mango will bring integration with Microsoft’s Office 365 service (currently in beta).  The ability to save and share Office documents through the service will be added along with, we assume, more direct access to the service from the handset.

Lync Mobile: Bringing Lync-based communication, this app will allow collaboration and other activities via the Microsoft Lync service.

Other features like complex passwords, protection of email and documents, HTML5, multitasking and native Twitter support are also expected.  Microsoft hopes to release this update by the end of the year.
