A Third Verizon Droid Clears the FCC?

According to an FCC filing, the next Android device for Verizon may be the Saygus (who?) VPhone V1. While this has yet to be confirmed, the evidence is pretty convincing. Saygus’ own web site talks about a third Android device coming to Verizon (link – Unstrung News Analysis).

Apparently the device doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack, though peripherals can be connected via its mini USB port [yawn]. From the available pictures, I find this phone to be a tad on the ugly side. I’m sure the final build will be nice though. After all, it has to live up to Verizon’s standards, doesn’t it? [sarcasm]

Here are the known specs…

  • Slide out keyboard
  • 3.5″ 800×480 capacitive touchscreen
  • 634MHZ Marvell PXA310 processor
  • 5MP autofocus camera
  • 512MB ROM and 256MB RAM
  • MicroSD slot
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • Accelerometer
  • Digital compass
  • FM radio
  • Front facing camera (for video calls?)

The one thing that excites me about this phone is the front facing camera. I’ve always said that implementing video chat has to be a priority for phone makers. I guess it may soon be a reality.

    Who cares … has VZ got a monopoly on Android phones now?

    Hey T-Moible, time to step it up and get a SERIOUS Android 2.0 phone with a physical keyboard.

    Front facing camera = WIN
    Much better keyboard = WIN WIN
    Smaller screen = It's not that small but "sigh"
    No 3.5" jack = You can't have it all…

    But it looks MUCH better than the Droid, IMO.

      I quickly retract that "MUCH better" opinion…. Saw the other pictures… it's an ugly brick.

    Could this be uglier than even the Droid. Nobody would even pick this thing up in a Verizon store!
