Verizon Wireless XV6900 availability starts on April 16th


Xv6900_front_h4webMark your calendars, to-do lists, Remember the Milk extensions, Post-It notes or whatever you use for reminders: the HTC Touch, er… XV6900 hits Verizon Wireless. That’s the date that Engadget Mobile has for on-line availibility of the XV6900. You’ll have to wait until April 30th to “touch” one in a Verizon Wireless store.No difference in expected price from what we heard out of CTIA: $349.99 after $50 mail-in-rebate. We also heard tell of an extra $100 off if you purchased a qualifying voice and data plan combo, so keep a watchful eye in case that deal is good too. Here’s an interesting factoid: the original VZW press release announcing the XV6900 doesn’t mention EV-DO or VCast. Error, omission, or… uh oh? I’m sure it’s in there based on the commentary around web-surfing, e-mail and such, plus the EV-DO indicator shown in the official picture, but why not mention it? I was only looking because I wanted to see if was the faster EV-DO Rev A. My gut says Rev 0.

I don’t believe this phone has GPS or is VZ Navigator capable. If it is, it’s not mentioned on the product page which is live today.

Can you run VZ Navigator with this phone? When they talk about 3rd party applications can is there another navigation tool you can use?

Stephen Feger

I have to admit, I don’t know what all the hype is about on this phone. I’m not knocking it. I always believe to each his own. But still…

But it has no keyboard, or even a keypad for that matter. This thing should be a royal PITA to do anything that involves data entry.

Am I missing something?
