Verizon Tweets "Excited" About Offering WP7

In an interview with CNET last month, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam didn't seem very impressed with Windows Phone 7.

“I can’t really say which phones we’ll offer yet. We like our relationship with Microsoft,” McAdam explained. “But clearly in the U.S. there are three major mobile operating systems: RIM, Google, and Apple.”

McAdam also stated that "Microsoft is not at the forefront of our mind."

In what seems to be a 360 in their position towards Windows Phone 7, Verizon tweeted, "As soon as Microsoft has 'em ready, we're excited to offer Windows 7 mobile devices"

Microsoft's brand new mobile OS isn't available on CDMA carriers so we can't expect WP7 to come to Verizon in the immediate future, but we should be seeing it sometime in 2011.

    I think I saw another tweet: "@Verizon OK I will tell you when we are getting WP7 as long as you stop asking about the MOTHER******* IPHONE!"
