The documents are currently little more than pages that prompt a user to head to a related page on a Microsoft website, where concise instructions can be found, but their posting hints at a potentially rapidly approaching launch date for Windows Phone 7 on Verizon. You can see sample pages here, and here.
It has been confirmed that the first Verizon WP7 handset will be the HTC 7 Trophy, which will cost $200 with a two-year contract. According to WinRumors: “Verizon’s offering will arrive in late March around the same time as Sprint.”

Verizon as a new provider for the platform represents a massive potential for growth. With both Verizon and Sprint releasing WP7 handsets in the same month, momentum for the WP7 mobile line should receive a palpable boost.
Of course, with the iPhone now on Verizon, the launch of the HTC 7 Trophy on the wireless carrier might not cause a splash, but it will certainly boost the profile of Windows Phone 7 at the second largest wireless provider in the US.
