It's an open secret (okay, it's not really a secret at all) that Verizon plans
to carry Windows Phone 7
handsets before too long, and in preparation for that grand event, it seems Big Red is populating the platform's Marketplace with a few wares. Verizon versions of Slacker Radio and Netflix are now in there alongside a carrier app -- My Verizon Mobile -- that lets you pull the usual stunts with your account like changing features and paying your bill. 'Course, they can drop 50 apps in there and it still doesn't mean much without hardware... so hopefully we see that Trophy
launch within a few weeks.
*Verizon is currently in the process of acquiring AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
