Today is the big red day of greatness. In the last weeks we have seen the official announcement of about 4 news smart phones heading to Verizon’s stable. We’ve seen the launch of the HTC Merge, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and the LG Revolution. However, to my dismay we seemed to have missed covering the 4th. The HTC Trophy is a big reds first WP7 device and is launching today along with the aforementioned devices. WP7 was officially announced last year and Verizon made it a point to not carry devices that use the operating system until 2011. Well big red customers, your time has come to get your hands on the tiled goodness of WP7 the HTC Trophy is available today and selling quick and is already sold out online.
