Apparently, Windows Phone 7 will not be available on Verizon they year!

I'm not one for profanity, but WTF!

Sure, from a global perspective, it makes sense, but I'm just a poor little American, stuck on [the not so small] Verizon network. Sounds like I'll have to wait until 2011 to get a WP7 device.

My phone contract is up and I'm in the market for a new phone. I've been holding out, and holding out, and holding out, stretching that Microsoft loyalty for all it's worth... thinking that I'll give WP7 a look. "Holiday 2010" has been a long wait, that just got longer.

Well, it looks like the decision has been made for me. Looks like my next two years will be hosted by Droid, wtih WP7 appearing on my belt "Holidays 2012".
