Call me Gadget: White iPad spotted, plus Verizon Windows Phone

This is going to be a big week for gadget news.

Apple is headlining it with the iPad 2 that it’s unveiling Wednesday in San Francisco. The early line on the device is that it’s slimmer, more powerful and has a camera.

A new leak at 9to5mac.com says there will be a white version of the iPad, based on a white bezel that surfaced in China.

Also appearing today is an image of an HTC Trophy smartphone running Windows Phone 7 on Verizon Wireless.

Verizon hasn’t yet said when it will carry WP7 devices, and its executives have talked down Microsoft’s mobile effort, but the phones were still expected to arrive soon.

Engadget’s report on the Verizon WP7 Trophy also says it has copy-and-paste capability.

If that’s not enough, more hints that Apple may offer lower-cost iPhone options were floated in a Bernstein Research report that was picked up by Forbes blogger Eric Savitz. It quoted Apple CFO Tim Cook saying the company is planning “clever things” to serve the lower-end, prepaid cellphone market.
