Can somebody from Verzion answer this?

I and many other customers have been waiting for a response from Verizon as to when they will offer more WP7 handsets.  I spoke with one of your marketing people who was at my place of employement trying to drum up customers the other day and she had no knowledge of any future WP7 offerings.  Does Verizon plan to offer anything beyond to the Trophy?  Are they abandoning WP7?  They seem to be dragging there feet in embracing this promising phone OS.  I really don't want to leave Verizon as I have been a customer for a long time, but I can't wait much longer for some type of Roadmap.  Other carriers are starting to pick up the better hardware, so there is an alternative. I do enjoy Verizon's quality coverage in my area, however other carriers are catching up on this front so there are other options.  All I ask for is one of these two answers:

 

We have no plans to offer any further hardware in the WP7 arena.

 

-or-

 

We do plan on offering more WP7 phones around this timeframe.  (Maybe mention some manufacturers.)

Like mdram4x4 said it's not going to happen.  I would LOVE to hear from VZW on why they don't release their product schedule.  They are doing more of a diservice by so secretive.  In this day in age with the choices we have as consumers we can go to any carrier now.  It shame VZW cannot be more open like their competitors....

 

I'm hoping with Nokia announcing the WP7 phone lineup next week that there will be some hope for VZW.  Although with at&t showing off there HTC Titan it tempting to jump ship.

You should add a disclaimer: Verizon does not announce phones prior to releasing them, unless they are an iPhone or an Android.

not really, they had no intention of mentiong the nexus, but had to because samsung let it slip in a tweet

vzw was not happy

 

 

you will know 1-2 weeks prior to either launch or pre-order

 

nothing months in advance

the bionic was the exception because of its delays

Them choosing not to give us a gameplan is much closer to not communicating at all.

What is the advantage of not announcing before releasing?

They think people would just settle for current phones instead of waiting?

 

If so, I can somewhat understand but: there are 4G VZW droids for free online.  The gap is so huge that people might give WP7 up for dead.  Does VZW care at all or is it just pushing people to Android?


My upgrade eligibility is coming next month and it's a huge ripoff to get the Trophy when there are 4G / better hw / better screen Androids for the same price.

 

4 months between my eligibility and end of contract.  Hopefully that's enough time to release a 4G WP7?  The workers are back from strike now aren't they?
