Every time we're ready to file the Verizon's HTC Trophy under 'myth', it peeks out to say hello. In this particular case, the evasive Windows Phone was caught in Costco's inventory system offered for $150 -- around the starting price we'd come to expect for it being Verizon's very first WP7 device. Unfortunately we aren't any closer to uncovering the Trophy's planned release date, but seeing it in the computer with a price attached gives us greater hope that we'll find it stocked on store shelves sooner rather than later.
