Pics: First Windows Phone for Verizon, HTC’s Trophy

We’ve known since February that Verizon’s first Windows Phone would likely be the HTC Trophy, a 1 gigahertz slab with a 3.8-inch touchscreen.

Today, the company’s made it official and said the device will go on sale online May 26 and in stores June 2 for $150, after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a new two-year contract. Buyers will need a Verizon Wireless voice plan, starting at $40 per month, and a data plan starting at $30 per month.

This is despite Verizon brass pooh-poohing Microsoft’s new phone platform, saying it’s not as important as Apple, Android and RIM.

Microsoft, Verizon and HTC are putting more emphasis on the device’s connections to Xbox Live. Buyers before July 15 get a free Xbox 360 game — either “Halo Reach,” “Kinect Sports” or “Lode Runner.”
