America’s most reliable network is about to release something new in the world of wireless. According to a recent FCC listing, Verizon Wireless may be on the verge of releasing the first Android phone to run in dual mode. The Android phone is reported as dual 3G modems, CDMA and GSM.
The greater part of Android devices sold in the United States have run on the Verizon Wireless network already, however there were quite a few that used Sprint’s CDMA and others that used GSM. Until now, very few Windows Mobile devices have run on Verizon Wireless networks. The dual mode phone will allow a much easier use for consumers to travel, giving owners capability to use the phone anywhere in the world.
The HTC PD42100 is listed by the FCC as the new Android phone. Verizon Wireless has included some the most coveted features in wireless phone technology on the market. The new Android reportedly has a four-inch multi-touch screen, spacious slide out keyboard, a 1.2GHz processor, DO Rev. A 3G, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n/), and Bluetooth.
The phone also retained some basic features like microSD expansion slot, a removable battery and a LED flash enabled camera. No information has been provided as to whether the processor is dual core or whether the camera is eight megapixels.
Verizon Wireless is accustomed to meeting the technology needs of customers. The company has received the Global Traveler award for providing the world’s best wireless service for several years.
