Default More Evidence WP7 is Coming To Verizon

"Looks like Microsoft took Big Red's challenge and decided to respond in kind, as the official Windows Phone Twitter feed claims that Windows Phone 7 devices are finally headed to Verizon. They'll allegedly arrive this holiday season, a good bit earlier than we were told, but we doubt you're exactly dismayed to get your hands on CDMA WP7 phones ahead of schedule."

I'm still wouldn't call this confirmed until Verizon actually make an official announcement , but with a CDMA handset ready in the wings, there's a fair chance that WP7 get a bite of more than the GSM market, and soon. Note that the tweet above has been followed up with a less committed one on the timing, but it seems just a matter of time until Verizon customers can get their hands on a WP7 phone.

I guess it will sell well among Verizon customers: they are used to locked down phones.

I am a Verizon Wireless customer. My current phone is a Samsung SCH-i760. I'm very happy with it.

After I first read of its specs, I followed every news item I could to find out when it would be available. It was a long wait, with a lot of false alarms. IIRC, it was finally available for purchase about four months after the initial prediction of its release.

So, although I want a W7 phone, I'm not going to hang many hopes on having one from Verizon this Christmas. I'm sure it will be out in time for some holiday season, but which one?
