FCC approved Samsung i770 and U430 for Verizon

Judging by its model number, Samsung SCH-U430 is the successor of the U410. You shouldn't expect anything great from a phone that most probably will be free with a 2-year contract.
Samsung SCH-i770, on the other hand, is an interesting model. It should be the successor of the i760, a Windows Mobile Professional smartphone with touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard. FCC reveals information that is CDMA/GSM hybrid, but unlike the rest "World" phones of Verizon, this one also supports the U.S. GSM frequencies. This means that if it is not locked, one will be able to use it with AT&T or T-Mobile SIM card. However, it is unlikely that Verizon will allow this to happen. i770 also features Bluetooth and WiFi.

I believe that the i770 will be VZWs version of the Samsung i620

The i770 could be one of the first phones that can be used on any network in the US and not be sold exclusively for any carrier. Maybe we can be like the rest of the world and pick our phone first then pick a carrier. :-)

well, they made special mention that not only is it cdma/euro GSM, its also American GSM compatible.. so its truely a whole world phone. Now unlocking is a diff story. It could be the first phone that has come to light to take advantage of that "any app, any device" stance verizon is getting ready to switch to.
