Verizon has expressed that it wouldn’t be carrying Windows Phone 7 devices until 2011, and now Microsoft is also confirming that its new platform will be GSM-only until the first half of 2011. So we won’t have a 4G Windows Phone 7 device.

Product manager Greg Sullivan said that trade-offs had to be made in order to meet the schedule and GSM was prioritized since it’s used worldwide, but that CDMA devices would be available early next year.
