Information on upcoming Verizon phones
posted by Nanko R. / Jun 30, 2008, 10:20 AM
Here is a list of the new devices:
• UTStarcom Touch Diamond and UTStarcom Touch Raphael: the CDMA siblings of the Diamond the Touch Pro will not come only to Sprint; big red will also offer them, most probably under the Verizon Wireless brand name.
• Samsung SCH-U310.
And of those we’ve already heard about:
• Motorola Blaze will have a model number ZN4, and is expected to be in stores before 22nd September. ZN means it will be a multimedia phone.
• Motorola VU30 will appear earlier than the Blaze, during mid August.
• Nokia 2605 will wear the Mirage name, and is expected in stores on August 8th. The 7205 Intrigue is mentioned without a date.
• Palm Treo 800w.
• Samsung SCH-U430 for late August.
• Samsung SCH-U440 for the 8th of August.
• UTStarcom TXT8010 in August.

All just copies of the iPhone... You know, they make a new iPhone every year. If you would just spend some cash on the "real thing" you wouldn't have to worry about something better coming out. There isn't a touch-screen phone out there that beats the iPhone. No, I don't currently own one. As a matter of fact I have a Voyager. Why? For the exact same reason you want the Diamond, or Dare, or Touch Pro, I want the iPhone. After using the Voyager I realized, why not just get the real thing? These other touch-screen phones are nothing but cheap knockoffs.

thouht you should know that iphone was a copy of many other touch phones that came out previous to it. apple just made a interface that was not wm, at&t, sprint, or vzw specific.....just get the phone that works best for your needs and budget....something great will always be "coming out soon"

Regardless of whether one phone copies another, the iPhone is not very business friendly. That is, there is no calender, to-do list, sync with outlook, unless the 3g iPhone will bring it in another app, I don't see much use for it in the business world.

Trevor is honestly the msot annoying person I've ever seen post on this site. More annoying than the guy who was calling every phone an iphone: "this is a great new lg iphone dare" "this is a great new htc iphone diamond" Seriously Trevor, July 11th please cancel your VZW account and go get your 3G iPhone.

@Trevor Maybe it's NOT that we want the "real thing." Maybe we want something w/ more functionality w/ the added enjoyment of a touch screen, on a more stable and reliable network. I am too an LG Voyager owner and was in a pickle b/n dropping Verizon and getting an iPhone. But after playin' w/ friends' iPhones, I've realized there are alot of things that disappoint. & CHeap knockoffs? LOL. Most touch screen phones aren't being made to stand up against the iPhone, and it's ppl like you who's fault it is for comparing to it.

I had a WM way before the iPhone came out... and guess what it was a touch screen... WOW that is amazing isn't it. How did the manage to clone the iPhone before it even came out? And about the iPhone being amazing... My friend just got one and tried it out he said it was the crapiest phone he has used. Apart from the flashy UI the phone is a peice of crap. The thing freezes on him like crazy, heats up like a mother (and trust me burning hot phone in the summer... not that exciting), and has the worst battery life I have ever seen. The phone sucks so bad that my friend is returning it and going back to his old N73 with Symbian, which is probably a better OS for a mobile phone than Apple.

Exactly why I left AT&T and iPhone for Verizon and the Dare. I would love to get the Diamond or BB Thunder, but I just need a basic touchscreen phone. The Dare so far has exceeded my expectations. And I am so happy I can send MMS and take clear videos...something my iPhone made me miss.

Lmao, I had a PalmPilot from the 1990's. It had an Amazing touch screen, games, and a calendar! I can't believe I didn't buy an iPhone in the 90s, cause like it was the first touch screen thing to ever come out and like, I should be loyal to the company who made the first touch screen interface on the planett!!!!!! >>Sarcasm

might want to check your facts on that. You indeed can sync with outlook, calander and to do lit. You can either love the I Phone or hate it but you should respect it. I think someone mentioned it earlier, if VZ had the phone it would be the greatest phone in the world. I think VZ's stragity back fired. I think the first year was rough for AT&T with the profit sharing of the unit and rates with Apple and VZ didn't want anything to do with that. I didn't blame them, I thought AT&T sold their soul to the devil. Deperate or not does it matter? But now in the second year with no profit sharing going to Apple fromthe phone and the price being right it will bring people in flocks. Even if the 3G network is subpar at the moment (works great when your on it).
