[Rumor] Inside Verizon’s Windows Phone 8 Launch Plan

With the news this morning that Nokia is planning on releasing a phone for Verizon’s network, we’ve been curious what Big Red is up to in the Windows Phone department. According to Insideris, a Verizon employee has given the skinny on what we’ll find on the network on day one.

HTC Windows Phone 8

– A midrange phone, 720p 4-4.3” screen, 1.2 GHz S4 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory.

Samsung Windows Phone 8

– One low end phone on a prepaid offering. HTC Trophy like specification, WVGA screen, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU, 4GB internal memory, 512 MB of RAM.

– One midrange Samsung phone, Galaxy Nexus clone.

Nokia Windows Phone 8

– One high end phone with a 768p 4.3″ screen.

Verizon is expected to be announced as a launch partner for Windows Phone 8, as Sprint is currently the only US carrier who has not responded positively to the new ecosystem. I guess we’ll see whether or not these rumors are true come September 5th, but three phones for Verizon customers? Woo! All you Trophy owners rejoice.
