What kind of pine tree do I have?

Before Christmas, Walmart was closing out some live pine trees, with decorations included. I bought one and it's been growing well in the house. It needs a bigger pot, the roots are coming out of the small pot it came in. That pot was in a plastic cup to hold water. So, of course the roots are now growing in the water.
The tree is just a little one foot tall one. Has short needles and is not too wide. I've been keeping it near a window to get some sunlight.
I am not much for house plants, but I have been babying this little tree. My plan is to plant it in my yard when Spring comes. However, I live in a Northern (USA) climate where it gets real cold in winter. I am not sure if this tree will survive in my climate (outdoors).
What gets me, is that nowhere on the package does it say what kind of pine tree it is. It came from the Netherlands, a company called UNGA.
Is this just a permanent house plant, or can I plant it outdoors when weather allows?
Does anyone know what kind of trees these are?
I am not planning to re-pot it since Spring is not too far away, (If I can plant it outdoors).
It looks healthy, and I water it daily, but am I over watering it, if the cup around the pot is filled halfway up the pot with water? If I water it less, the roots below the pot will be out of the water and dry up.
Like I said, I have little experience with house plants, so any advice is appreciated.

IMO wrap it with an old rag and keep the rag moist to keep the roots from drying out but you don't need the plant sitting in water all the time.
yes, setting it out now is not a good idea. wait until it gets warmer, but not too late, depends upon the weather really.
no idea what type of pine tree it might be.

Not all pines are desirable for planting around the house. OP should post a picture with url posted here so we can look at it.
