Not only is the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, Motorola Droid X2, and the LG Revolution , so is the HTC Trophy Windows phone. Pricing sits at $149.99 on a two-year contract after mail-in rebate, and if you need any extra incentive, if you buy before July 15 Verizon will toss a free copy of Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports, or Lode Runner for their Xbox 360. Not bad, but up here in Canada, Telus has been known to give away whole systems with a new activation. Jussayin’.
The HTC Trophy packs some respectable specs: 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.8-inch WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, 16 GB of on-board storage, and all the usual stuff like Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, and world-capable 3G.
This is the first Windows Phone to grace Verizon Wireless, and we’ve been expecting it since as far back as November. Who knows why there was such a long wait, but for those either in love with their Xbox or looking for something other than Android, iPhone, or BlackBerry, the Trophy will be a welcome sight. Given the alternatives launching on May 26, however, how many will grab it?
