Tagged under: [] [] [] [] [] [] [] got its hands on an internal document showing the product line of Verizon Wireless for the whole 2007.
According to this documents, Verizon Wireless plans to release a whole bunch of new phones including 5 "new" Windows Mobile 6 Professional (with touch screen) and Standard (without touch screen) smartphones. These Windows Mobile smartphones are the Motorola MOTO Q9m and MOTO Q9c, the UTStarcom SMT5800 and XV6800 and the Samsung SCH-i760.

The Motorola MOTO Q9m and MOTO Q9c will be the CDMA-version of the MOTO Q9h and the successor of the original MOTO Q which is still available with Verizon. The successor of the original Q has redesigned keyboard, very similar to the one of the Q9h. The Q9m is the consumer edition and will be available first, probably before the month is over. The Q9c is the enterprise edition and will be available in Q4. Both are based on Windows Mobile 6 Standard but have minor differences, explained in the table. Like the old Q, the Q9m and Q9c have 1.3 megapixel camera and miniSD slot, instead of 2 megapixel and microSD found on the Q9h:

The UTStarcom SMT5800 will be another new Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone and basically it's the EV-DO version of the HTC Vox (aka HTC S710). Therefore it has both, a numeric keyboard on the front and slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The SMT-5800 has 2 megapixel camera, 128 MB ROM and 64 MB RAM and is expected to be upgradeable to EV-DO Rev. A. It should be out in October:

The UTStarcom XV6800 is the Verizon's version of the HTC Mogul, a EV-DO Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone (upgradeable to EV-DO Rev. A) with 256 MB ROM and 64M B RAM, WiFi, microSD and a 2 megapixel camera. It should come in October and replace the Verizon Wireless' XV6700 (HTC Apache):

The Samsung SCH-i760 has been known for months already, but the document confirms it will come in September. Like the SMT5800 it has numeric keyboard and side-sliding QWERTY, but has touch-sensitive display and so runs on Windows Mobile 6 Professional instead of Standard:

Looks like an impressive second quarter and if you are interested in Windows Mobile smartphones, Verizon Wireless seems to have something for everybody's taste.
