Apparently if you give Verizon's business unit a call and ask for SKU# SCHi760ZKV, they'll kindly set you up with the device that's due to be officially released on Sept. 24th. Or at least they did, who knows if they've shut it down or not yet. The i760 is something I've been looking forward to for awhile, an innovative little slider with a standard keypad and a shifted-down 5-way to make more room for a large touchscreen. We saw it accidentally appear on a corner of Verizon's site before, so it's little surprise that it's accidentally appeared again - but now in physical form in people's grubbby hands.

The specs, they are nice:

  • 60 x 110 x 20 mm
  • 150 grams
  • Windows Mobile 6 Professional
  • 400 MHZ Samsung (naturally) Processor
  • 128MB ROM
  • 64 MB RAM (54.5MB for the User)
  • 2.8" touchscreen, 320x240
  • EVDO
  • MicroSD
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • WiFi (both B and G)
  • 1.3 mp camera
[...] if you need the best and brightest on Verizon, this is, hands down, your best bet. Run, don’t walk, to you phone and call those CS reps. Give them this SKU for the device, SCHi760ZKV, and tell ‘em BGR sent ya’.
