I don’t know who this hurts more but Verizon Wireless will not be carrying Windows Phone 7 devices at launch or anytime in 2010. Verizon’s Brenda Raney said the carrier “will probably release a phone in 2011” reports Bloomberg.

It’s unclear if Verizon’s heavy investment and dealings with Google were a determining factor or whether or not Verizon is apprehensive to partner with Microsoft after the Kin debacle. We’re waiting to hear back from Verizon. (More: Microsoft Kin Is No More)

And here I got all excited about the app demos (watch the video). Thanks for ruining my high, Verizon.
