The HTC Trophy (Verizon's first WP7 phone) will debut on May 26 for $199 - 50MIR. Buy it before July 15 and you can get Xbox 360 games Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports, or Lode Runner (?) for free.

AT & T gets a new phone - the HTC HD7S on June 5 for $199 with contract. It's an improved version of the HD7 with a nicer screen.

Besides the HD7S and Trophy that just came out, are there any new phones coming out this Fall? My Att plan is good for an upgrade now, and I may just get the Focus for $50 if there isn't really anything on the horizon.

I would wait for the fall. There will be some new phones with gyroscopes built in, which will make tilt control games play much better (akin to using the Wiimote Plus instead of just a Wiimote). Specs could be slightly higher too, but we'll see. We'll likely learn about upcoming phones before summer is out.
