Moto RIZR Z6c at FCC

Motorola is producing a unique version of its RIZR Z6 slider that will be tailored to Americans traveling abroad, according to a new FCC filing. The Z6c will be aimed at Verizon customers and include not just a CDMA connection for calls and EVDO data but will also offer dual-band 900MHz and 1800MHz GSM. This allows a phone equipped with the right SIM card to connect to most Asian and European networks and also parts of North American networks like AT&T. This will allow travelers to connect at local rates or use pre-paid services.

The new RIZR will share most of the same components as the reference Z6 available unlocked and through Alltel, with a 2-megapixel camera, a microSD slot, and Bluetooth with stereo audio support. Digital TV is likely to be limited to the Z6tv already in service at Verizon. No launch information has been leaked through the FCC file, which suggests a release within weeks for the US cell carrier.
