HTC 7 Trophy Windows Phone coming soon?

The HTC Trophy was first mentioned back in December 2009. It should have been a Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard on the front. HTC should have launched it in May this year, but that obviously didn’t happen.

Now we’re hearing that the Trophy may have been remade and renamed, and it could be launched with Windows Phone 7 on-board.

The new name is HTC 7 Trophy – a device with this moniker has just been approved by the Global Certification Forum. We know from the GCF that the HTC 7 Trophy features quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity and dual-band UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (900/2100 MHz), so it could be launched in Europe and Asia.

The 7 in the name indicates that the handset may run Windows Phone 7 – like it does it in the names of the HTC HD7 and LG Optimus 7.

The photo above is just a mockup, based on what the initial HTC Trophy should have looked like. The HTC 7 Trophy will likely be different. Unfortunately, we currently don’t know when the new handset will be announced.
