If you were looking forward to a Nokia Windows Phone on Verizon’s network, it looks like you might have to wait for awhile. According to reports online, the carrier was supposed to sell a Nokia phone that was codenamed Om but that cancelled it due to the lack of Verizon LTE support. Another possible reason for the cancellation could also be due to the launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 on AT&T earlier this year.
As of now, Verizon has only got one Windows Phone device for sale – the HTC Trophy. It was the first Widows Phone device to be on Verizon, and has been the last one since then. It’s also likely to be the only one for awhile more until Verizon LTE support comes to with Windows Phone 8, Verizon chooses to release a non-LTE device. What do you think of Verizon’s alleged decision? Should the carrier release Windows Phone devices now, or should it wait for LTE capable models?
