Verizon 2008 phone list
Information has leaked on the remainder of Verizon's cellphone releases for 2008, a report claims. Preeminent in the list are some phones unexpected for Verizon's roster, such as CDMA versions of the Touch Diamond and the Touch Pro, which will likely rebranded under the carrier's own naming scheme. Also mentioned is a Samsung phone, the SCH-U310, which does not have any previously published information. The fact is unusual in that many of Samsung's phones are released in Asia and Europe months before they arrive in North America, and are publicized internationally. No dates have been mentioned for the U310 or the Touches.
Other phones in Verizon's schedule include the Motorola's Blaze/ZN4, due on September 22nd, and the VU30, arriving in mid-August. Nokia's 2605 is being renamed to Mirage and should ship August 8th, while the 7205 Intrigue is due at an unspecified date. Samsung's U440 should also arrive on the 8th, although its sibling U430 is only due towards the end of the month. UTStarcom's TXT8010 is expected at some point during August, and finally, Palm's Treo 800w has an uncertain timeframe. [via Phone Arena]
