Is a Windows Phone 7 version of the HTC Trophy coming?


One of my most favourite handsets which never made it to market was the HTC Trophy, a smartphone with a front-facing QWERTY and a capacitive VGA screen which was meant to arrive some time this year but but appeared to have been cancelled in the end.

Now the::unwired reports that an enigmatically named HTC 7 Trophy has just passed through the Global Certification Forum with European UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz bands.

No further information is available, but it would be rather odd for HTC to include the number 7 in the name of an Android device, so I feel we can be rather confident it will be a Windows Phone 7 device, hopefully coming soon (given that it was certified).

The picture on top of course is just a mock up. Whether the name indicated a new device, is just a re-used code name (which HTC does to confuse leakers on purpose sometimes) or marks the long-awaited arrival of a real front-facing QWERTY keyboard device will remains to be seen.
