Windows Phone 7 Launching May 12th on Verizon?

03 May

We had heard yesterday that Windows Phone 7 might soon be arriving on Verizon and sure enough WPCentral is reporting that they are hearing May 12th as the possible date that the last of the four major U.S. mobile carriers gets their hands on Microsoft’s software.

The news comes a day after Verizon put up an official looking Windows Phone forum on their website and just two days after we saw Big Red’s Windows Phone 7 powered HTC Trophy appear on Best Buy’s website.

Verizon’s HTC Trophy is expected to be the first device to hit Verizon’s airwaves with the HTC 7 Pro (likely with a different name) coming sometime thereafter.

It’s also said that Verizon employees are starting to undergo training for Windows Phone 7 today which means that that May 12th date might not be too far off the official one.

So, now that we’re likely only a few days out from an official launch, anyone going to be snagging a Windows Phone 7 handset from Big Red? Or has something else (Samsung Droid Charge, HTC Droid Incredible 2, HTC ThunderBolt, iPhone 4) caught your eye already?
