    That's a bit of a bummer, not sure why they would go with LCD as opposed to SLCD. Did they talk price at all?

    This is sad news. Was one of the few selling points of the hardware :(
    I love a beautiful, clear, vibrant screen. That, it is not.

    We asked on price and he said it wasn't set but he figured 199

    Here we go:

    HTC rep says May 26 release date.

    Rep states the phone just finished its official testing yesterday.

    LCD screen.

    5 mp camera

    16 g memory


    No initial support for flash, no mobile hotspot feature. Does support Silverlight.

    My thoughts? I am impressed with the OS, it seemed smooth and trouble free. Love the Xbox live capabilities. Like the tiles. But, disappointed it doesn't support Flash. And once you are used to 4G like I am, its hard to be excited about a 3 G phone. I typed this quick so fire away with questions.
    any idea if the storage will be user-accessible?

    Don't quote me on this: I was playing with the phone when that was asked and I believe the answer was that it was internal

    good to see that there is finally a real date for this. unfortunately, in my case it's too late since I already jumped ship and went with T-Mobile cause I got tired of waiting. For those of you who have kept up the vigil I congratulate you on your patience and wish you much happiness with your imminent new WP7 phone!

    I played around with the HD7 at T-moblie, and I was unimpressed with the screen. So I imagine the Trophy will be no different. Can you confirm the screen on the HD7 Wolf?

    I've tried not to listen to the spec haters regarding this phone because I was holding out hope for the SLCD. But if it's really not SLCD then I think it's safe to say that this will be the worst WP7 handset out there. Disappointing.

    That said, I'll still buy one. It's all about the OS.

    Exactly. Besides, I'll be transitioning from a Touch Pro 2, so it won't take much to please me.

    Can you ask the rep why they backtracked from the SLCD to the LCD? All this waiting and I have to say, from what you have said, am very very disappointed.

    This is not a personal attack, this is not meant to offend; I hope it ends up being everything you all wanted. Overall, I'm not impressed

    You may have been, had it been the samsung focus or omnia 7. It just means Verizon picked a crap phone (yet again) to represent MS on their network. No personal attack here either, just an explanation.

    Why I would pay $200 for that phone rather than $50 for the Focus is beyond me at this point. Of course, we have decent coverage by ATT here.

    I've heard HTC 7 Pro (aka Sprint Arrive) [http://pocketnow.com/windows-phone/h...on-as-htc-pro] and an unnamed Sammy handset. Supposedly also a collaboration between MS, Nokia and Verizon is in the works for the Mango era.

    Wireless vet, is the May 26th date when the phone will be available in stores? If so, will there be a pre-order online tomorrow, similar to the X2 and Xperia Play?

    i really hope they do something like that, my gut tells me if they don't slip on the 5/26 date though, it will just be announced next tuesday and show up at stores on thurdsday.

    i wonder what the off contract price will be...

    if the non slcd screen is true though, i might just stick with my focus until gen2 hardware comes to verizon. :\

    HTC has phased out all normal LCD screens and SLCD is now standard on all HTC phones so the only explanation is the one that you were being trained on was an old model. The Trophy Verizon will get will have SLCD. Thanks for the date though.
