Verizon to get 5 new phones
We’ve already heard rumors and saw some spy photos of a few phones, but now a combined product pipeline image appears, showing 5 of the phones Verizon Wireless will probably offer in the near future.

Motorola Z6tv is a variant of the Z6 RIZR (Z6m in CDMA) which will be the new TV phone of the carrier. The Motorola Q9m is the CDMA-version of the Q9h, being successor of the first Q and respectively slim Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone with wonderful QWERTY keyboard. Motorola will straighten its position also with the fashionable RAZR2 V9m, which is the EV-DO variant of the RAZR2 series, replacing the first RAZRs.

Samsung i760 and UTStarcom XV6800 are WM6 Professional Smartphones with touch sensitive displays. Both have side-sliding QWERTY keyboards but the i760 also features a standard numeric one on the front panel. The XV6800 is a variant of the HTC Mogul for Sprint.

I heard the Q9M would be coming out for AT&T. The fact that it is a CDMA phone seems to confirm, atleast, that it's not a Verizon phone. Hope it is thought because I'll be the 1st one to buy it, someone let me know the deal.

Motorola Q9m is the CDMA version, which Verizon is purported to release. The Motorola Q9h is the GSM/HSPDA version that AT&T has already released this past Spring, I believe.

I realize govt workers and others cannot have a camera phone, but some of us need a camera phone. I need a world phone for work travel, and find it painful to rent them from Verizon. I tried out our corporate ATT account and got a new treo 755 that is a world phone but the reception is awful! I want Verizon to have a world phone!!! And, ideally I want it a Windows based phone 'til RIM's OS grows up. Any info?

I hate to break it to you sj, there is no such thing as a world phone for Verizon. 'World Phones' are known as GSM while Verizon and Sprint use CDMA phones. CDMA (like GSM, a coding system used by carriers) that is not used outside the U.S. The only way you could get a Verizon world phone is wish that they change to GSM or similar technology or hope that everyone changes to CDMA. Verizon currently has the better call quality compared to AT&T, so I'm not surprised by your comments about reception.

I hate to break it to you Daniel, but Verizon, much like Sprint, has multiple "World Phones". Two of the most notable are the Blackberry 8830 Dual-Mode (CDMA/GSM), and the Samsung IP-830W Quad-Band (CDMA/GSM- Two Bands Of Each).
