More on the Verizon XV6900 Touch

Well it looks like the Verizon Touch that surfaced last Friday is coming a might bit quicker than we expected, given that Engadget Mobile just scored a bunch of pics and details. Check out their Gallery to find out that, uh, it looks identical to the Sprint version (except for that white thing).

No word yet on what they'll be putting on the TouchFLO cube, but it does look like there's a shopping cart on the Today screen. In other words - expect it to be Verizon-alicious just like the Sprint Touch's cube is Sprint-app'ed up. Bummer, we were hoping for more customization - like, oh, a 4th side to the cube to add our own links.

Specs are out of the box too - EVDO (duh), WM6, 2 Megapixel camera, and the GPS is turned on in this one! Hopefully Sprint will follow suit on their version very soon, as expected.

  • coming a might bit quicker than we expected, given that Engadget Mobile just scored a bunch of pics and details
    Just to clarify... Is that prediction (coming quicker than expected) strictly based on the recent scoring of new pics and details, or did I miss something?
  • Yep, just based on the fact that the manual has been leaked. Sorry for the confusion.
    ...with a name like "snowbound," you might not want a white phone, eh? Could lose it in the snow!

    Hehe... Hadn't thought about that... though I've found that the color of an item doesn't matter if it's under snow. On top, well, I hope not to have a reason to know whether it matters. :-)
    I suppose you'd think I ski or something, but it's just that it was a snowy day when I signed up, and I probably had to go out to shovel.
  • LOL. I think I picked my name on a day I was feeling depressed or something. "Septimus" is a shell-shocked WWI soldier from a Virginia Woolf novel. ;)

    From what I've read, it (VZW Touch alias 6900) is said to be thinner than the Sprint version. This might mean that Seidio's battery, which is about 30% more power, won't fit into the thing......I'm concerned about this! The 1100 maH battery that comes with the Touch just barely gets it through one day.

    We have to confirm that thinness issue (the folks in the store would be unhappy because it would mean yet another form factor to get cases for). Do you think it would be the same as the Alltel version?
