    Ahhh crap I am now thinking it won't be out now till the 26th the lg revolution and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play are both getting released in stores that day. But on the bright side the playstation phone is getting released the 19th on the website. Supposedly
    You have to figure if it's coming the 19th, VZW or HTC will probably say something in the next few hours. It's only 8 am PST, but I can't imagine a late day reveal. This week is looking more and more unlikely. Sucks.

    Yeah that's what I'm afraid of. I had to break down and buy a 45 dollar pixi plus cause my imagio was so bad I couldn't stand it anymore so at least I have a new piece of tech to keep my mind a little off the fact that I'm being screwed and not getting my trophy.

    I don't see how they can be realeasing the Playstation Phone over the Trophy with all of the "Playstation Network hacked" debacle going on. Seems like they could skip that for a while and focus on WP7.

    I got the pixi plus in February for the same reason. Ok phone but I've done all I can with it and want the HTC Trophy soon. So frustrating when you seen news of new phones again and again and the Trophy is not included.

    I think I saw this on the Verizon Forums. Some guys are reporting on Twitter that it's a go for the 19th, citing Best Buy and Verizon Employees. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Just talked to the manager at Microsoft Store in Oak Brook and she told me she has been in direct contact with Verizon about the Trophy. She said they were originally shooting for it to released on the 15th with the Charge but there was a problem so it was delayed (obviously), but it will definitely be released this month. She said Verizon did not give them another date.

    Interesting. PocketNow claims they confirmed May 26 for that one.

    We've got another Trophy running wild in NJ via ebay classifieds.

    It has new pics showing the battery and whatnot. It says be the first to own the phone that will be available later in the month.

    Verizon Htc Trophy 7 Windows Phone NEW - Global !! | Iselin | eBay Classifieds (Kijiji) | 11332864

    I have a New HTC phone for Verizon. It is called the Trophy 7, which contains Windows 7. It is not even available through Verizon YET! But be the first, it does not come out until later in the month! Get you hands on it ASAP.

    I'm curious as to how the phone can have text on it when the battery is taken out...

    The funny thing is that there is a Microsoft office located in that part of Jersey.

    I have two emails from our product release rep and the Xperia is up in our "Infomanager".

    Edit: The Xperia will be available through our "Ironic" portals this Thursday (internet and web). All channels May 26 (stores and other channels)

    About the ebay listing:

    It looks fake. If you save the left image locally and then open and zoom in a bunch, you can see a distinct border around the verizon logo like it was photoshopped in.

    So the 19th isn't looking likely. Perhaps they'll release it Saturday like the Charge.

    Makes sense. Thanks!

    What's the bare minimum amount of lead time you would expect on any given new phone before it releases? 24 hours?

    Appreciate the insight!

    Doubtfull. The only reason the Charge was released on an odd day was because of a struggle between Samsung and Motorola.

    Well that might be confirming my switch to another carrier as this is just blatant bullcrap from Verizon. They really need to get their act together, they are losing a lot of customers over stuff like this.

    Remember how I've said I haven't taken one call regarding any Windows 7 phones? I still haven't, but have had plenty of calls on this.

    Makes sense. I'd expect plenty of buzz and demand on any gaming-centric phone like this one.

    I wonder if WP7 would get more attention in general if they added another marketing approach to be more focused on the games and the Xbox brand.
