Verizon Fall 2007 Leak
Nearly all the devices Verizon plans to introduce by the end of the year have been revealed through a leak of the company's roadmap. The new update elaborates on a previous claim and reveals new details about previously hinted-at devices; the SMT5800 is now known to be a CDMA version of the HTC Vox (pictured) which adds faster EVDO Revision A with an upgrade and includes a 2-megapixel camera. It will ship in October preloaded with Windows Mobile 6, according to the report.
More smartphones beyond the HTC VX6800, Motorola Q9m, and Samsung i760 are also claimed to be enroute, with the Treo 755p and BlackBerry 8130 have been confirmed and are set to arrive in November. Higher-end media phones will include the unannounced Motorola ROKR Z6c, a dual-mode version of the Z6tv that drops V CAST TV for roaming across both CDMA and GSM networks; the Samsung U700 (known as the "Gleam") and U900, two Ultra-series phones with 2-megapixel and 3-megapixel cameras respectively; and three simpler models, the LG-made VX5400 and VX8350 and Samsung's U410.
Most of these mid-range phones are given a tentative launch window of the second half of the year, with the exception of the Z6c's November release. The Q9m appears first in August. Despite the completeness of the leak, pricing is unavailable. [via Phone Arena]
