The country’s largest wireless service provider just announced an official release date for its first Windows Phone 7 device, the HTC Trophy.

It will be available online May 26 and in retail stores June 2. It will retail for $149.99 after a $49.99 mail-in rebate.

Windows Phone 7 has been available on AT&T since last November.

One funny bonus Verizon’s using to reel in customers: if you buy the Trophy before July 15th, they’ll hook you up with a free copy of Halo: Reach (our pick), Kinect Sports, or Lode Runner for Xbox.

Here’s a quick rundown of the Trophy’s specs:

  • 1 GHz Snapdragon® processor
  • WVGA 3.8-inch touchscreen
  • 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash
  • 720p HD video capture
  • 16 GB on-board storage
  • Global ready
  • HTC Hub-customisation
  • Windows Phone 7’s editing suite for Microsoft Office
