Information on new Verizon phones for 2008
posted by Nanko R. / Mar 13, 2008, 7:48 AM
We once again bring you the exclusive scoop on the LG VX9100, VX8610, Motorola W755, Nokia 2605 and 7205. Today, there are rumors that the two Nokia phones will come in early Q3. The new information indicates that the VX9100 will also come in maroon color variant, on or around its launch date (expected Q2). New color scheme will also receive the Alias U740, coming in silver.
Motorola Z6cx is a camera-less variant of the global Z6c, with all other features being the same. *Update* It is now available! What is more interesting is the Motorola VU30 (or Motorola UV30 - still not confirmed) which may come with the Intrigue branding.
The following models are expected in the Q3 or Q4:
The new rumor points out that LG will replace its VX8350 and Chocolate, with respectively, the LG VX8360 and LG VX8560. However, the actual replacement of the Chocolate 8550 may be the VX8610 (thanks Gene).
Samsung SCH-U810 will be what the Koreans will bring to the carrier. Samsung U810 will have the World Edition branding, just as the Z6c(x) and the 8830, which means it will have CDMA for domestic usage and GSM for overseas.
To see a full list of the upcoming Verizon phones and their expected availability dates, go to Verizon Upcoming Phones page.
Since this is a rumor, we cannot guarantee the genuineness of the present information.Of course, we will update you once something new appears.
a question that has been bugging me is whether the glyde is actually a 3g phone? does it have wireless? is it a smartphone? let me know?

The U940 is NOT a PDA, very similar to voyager except it has a slide out keyboard and it does have HTML browsing. Samsung Doesn't change there phones often, and the U740 is a decent seller. The only reason it didn't sell good in the beginning is because of the champagne color that was only offered. Recent Samsung phones have be awesome phones. No more complaints on signal issues. Good solid phone (which everyone thought the hinges would break), and has been more reliable than my VX9900, and my VX8550. I think I'm going to go back to my samsung, till the U940 comes out. I haven't seen any pictures of the Maroon VX9100, but I saw a huge software list, and noticed the VX9100 on there and then I saw VX9100M sku, and in brackets (Maroon) was there. Which I'm thinking is the same burgundy/red that's currently on the VX8350, and the Chocolate. Since those looked more maroon looks like LG finally isn't color blind anymore and named it appropriately. I'm glad I was able to give Phonearena some tips. I don't always know ahead of time but sometimes I stumble on things :)

Pretty nice line up, but I don't ge tthe point of the ZCx...just get the one w/ the camera. And the 8610 is kinda ugly...not chocolate like. They need another replacement. Their color choices are also boring and dull. They shouldn't have distontinued the champaign color for the u740. Also, the new touch phones will be a nice addition.

for those that were inquiring about the curve coming to Verizon, in the corperate office the ceo's are already using them and it was announced it's on the way. No release date tho. They also hinted towards a blackberry with camera and touch screen exclusive to Verizon. Uber Berry is what we call it over here.

Question 19: The curve isn't on the list, it's currently being tested. Execs in our already testing the device. There is no launch date. Our regional blackberry rep mentioned to us about touch screen blackberry that will be an exclusive for verizon. There is no release date on the 9xxx series Blackberry, or how long the exclusivity will run. Question 20: Verizon has not been hindering phones, we purchase the phones previously with out BT with OBEX, now most if not all new current models have had this capability. It's no different now than any other carrier. Services that are offered are solid and reliable and some of the best in the industry. If you can't afford it, then you can keep paying for your second best. You left the comment here. Your response is obviously un-educated and does not support any information to this site. Which is the main reason people come here. So please stop flooding threads with your unsupportive and unappreciated comments.

Verizon can do whatever they want, whenever they want with whatever they want. They are hands down the best wireless carrier out there (and no, I don't work for them). So keep your "great" phones and lousy service. I have personally liked every phone I've had with Verizon
