Verizon has had a nice amount of issues with Microsoft due to the KIN debacle – given that Windows Phone 7 is little more than a KIN on steroids, it is only too understandable that big Red is not too interested in the product.
The Boy Genius now got access to Verizon’s roadmap for 2010 and 2011. They describe it as following:
One of our Verizon Wireless sources has dropped a whole bunch of info in our laps. We’re talking intimate details of Verizon Wireless’ plans for the rest of 2010, 2011 and even some 2012 plans. Android tablets, LTE MiFi units, Android 3.0, video conferencing, and a whole lot more. Read on for the full details!
Does anyone note something fishy? Windows Phone 7 is not mentioned once in the entire roadmap!
Even though this may sound shocking, keep in mind that Windows Mobile is mainly used by businesses. For them, WP7 is unattractive – and why should Verizon invest into yet another untested platform if Android is readily available?
