Enormous HTC slider appears on FCC website with Verizon branding
posted by PhoneArena Team / Sep 05, 2010, 7:34 AM
Details at this point are still pretty scarce, but we do know that the device sports a sliding QWERTY island keyboard and a 4" display. And thanks to the FCC documents, we've learned that the device supports CDMA 2000 and GSM 850, in addition to EV-DO Rev. A. Predictably, the phone also offers Bluetooth and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity.
Still no word yet on the phone's name, release date, or pricing - but you can bet Verizon will be working overtime to get this big red monster to market in time for the holidays.

But, I think those are bound to change because all the windows phones announced would have the windows symbol on it, just as every leaked windows phone 7 has show along with all their other windows mobile handsets.

It has no windows button. It's clearly not a W7 phone.

Definitely not WP7. Most likely the Merge. Maybe the Scorpion if there are still rumors about that floating about. Possibly the Scorpion will turn out to be the Merge. Who knows... Sooooo, if it's rocking the dual CDMA and GSM, would that mean that if (pretty big "if" here ) it did have a front facing camera that it would be able to make a call and use data for video calling at the same time? Or make a call and do other data tasks simultaneously? That's one thing I wouldn't mind Verizon addressing just to check it off the list.

dude its an android phone for sure. I was asking the htc rep if we were ever to get a slider android phone like the did for tmobile and he said "yes, very soon" so i'll take it that this is what hes talking about. pretty dope phone if you ask me. im holding a samsung fascinate right now and i have to say that 4" is the perfect size for a smartphone screen. but ya, for the people doubting, fcc document might have a mix up or something cause thats the button layout for android. all windows phones have a windows button.
