Yes, Verizon's calling them "Windows 7 mobile devices," but the underlying message is clear -- Verizon's tossing the Windows Phone 7 CDMA ball squarely into Microsoft's court. There are no CDMA-ready smartphones running Microsoft's latest mobile operating system (save the late-blooming HTC 7 Pro for Sprint) and Verizon doesn't intend to take any of the blame for that. You're up, Microsoft. Time for a three-point basket.
P.S. We suppose this could also be a coy reference to CDMA-ready Windows 7 tablets.

Verizon happy to offer Windows Phone 7 devices 'as soon as Microsoft has 'em ready'
