Verizon has released the first EVDO capable handset which opens a whole new world of possibilities for mobile warriors. With broadband-like speeds the Verizon EVDO is now available in many major cities across the US and the introduction of the CDM8940 from UTStarcom Personal Communications (formerly Audiovox Communications Corp.) brings high-speed connectivity to the hand. The CDM8940 has a mini-SD slot for memory expansion and a 1.3 megapixel camera. If it only had Bluetooth it would make the perfect modem for laptops and UPCs. The phone is available at Verizon retail outlets and Radio Shack stores nationwide.
