It's been a over a month since we last heard anything new regarding the Pantech Escapade WP8990VW
world phone for Verizon. Today we heard from a Verizon tipster that the device is now listed in their system with a release date of Friday August 21st, but unfortunately pricing is still missing. The Escapade will be joining the Samsung Renown
as the only two Verizon dumb-phones with CDMA and GSM support
for world travling while using the included Vodafone SIM card. Too bad the Escapade will not come with EVDO or a microSD card slot, both of which are found on the Renown.Pantech Escapade WP8990VW Preliminary Specifications
