Xv6800Engadget Mobile dropped the news a few hours ago with some Verizon news to combat all of the Sprint EV-DO Rev. A battle plans: VZW will get a CDMA version of the HTC TyTN called the XV6800. Based on the pic from Engadget Mobile, the device will support the newer EV-DO Rev. A network and expands upon many features from the XV 6700: same basic goodness on the outside, but much more in the chewy center:

  • Bluetooth 2.0 support
  • 802.11 b & g
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • 256 MB RAM and 96 MB of ROM

I’ve had the XV6700 for about a year and I absolutely love it. It’s actually my most used device, but these specification increases are a welcome change. We’ll be looking to eye-spy this at the HTC / UTStarcom booth at CES in a few short weeks. If I like what I see (and I expect I will), I think this will be my next phone.

  5. Glad I waited. I was planning on upgrading my 6600 to the 6700 — I would have been extremely upset!!!

    Looks like a great device — especially since Verizon has increased the memory over Cingular’s 8525.

    I hear Verizon will be launching the 6800 on January 15th.

  6. Kevin, I may, depending on price, get one as well. It’ll break up the Q Continuum, sadly, but it was probably going to happen one day any way. Thanx for the head’s up, amd Happy Holidays to you and James and the jkOnTheRun family.

  7. Is the new xv6800 considered a Pocket PC? Is it comporable in features to my current aging Samsung i730?

  8. Oh yes… also can I give my current samsung i730 to my wife, and have her use it with our current Verizon accounts? She needs to get organized. We were looking at standard PDAs. I’m now thinking I can recycle my old pda/phone with her.
