Verizon’s XV6800: EV-DO Rev. A phone in the HTC TyTN

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.
