For all you Verizon customers if you were looking forward to the Windows 7 Phone it is not happening this year. Verizon is actually not planning to release a Windows Phone 7 of it’s own until next year. This is not necessarily all bad considering they will be able to gauge the success AT&T and other carriers will have with the Windows Phone 7 before deciding to take a risk with another Windows Mobile device. Considering the success they have with Android powered phones it would not be a surprise if Verizon did release a Windows Phone 7 that it would not have as much public advertisement as it’s Android phones. For all of us waiting to see whether or not Windows Phone 7 will flop this will be something to keep an eye on.
