Oh, no! The Verizon Snap is the 'Ozone'

Lo, how we dream of they day when a manufacturer will name a phone and a carrier will just use it. But that day is not today.

And so we bring you, courtesy of the Boy Genius Report, the Verizon Ozone — aka the HTC Snap/Willow/Maple. No release date or pricing, and it's safe to say it won't beat Sprint's variant out the door. But it does have WiFi, is a world phone (CDMA and GSM radios), and sports IE6, visual voicemail and VZ Navigator (which points to the dreaded locked-down GPS.)

  • Brilliant. Give the phone a name that could make people think about the environmental effects of manufacturing. That'll sell well.
  • I guess it's better than XV89042
  • lol. Good point.
  • Verizon ripped out Inner Circle too?
  • Wow, that looks hideous compared to the Sprint version.
  • Whats with the space bar placement on the Snap? Move it 1 to the left and center it!
